It looks like companies like ASUS and GIGABYTE will be working together in some regards, where it's being reported by Digitimes that Taiwanese notebook makers are now standardizing common components in order to reduce production costs.




Components like motherboards, heat sinks, hinges and the chassis itself will be standardized. Digitimes reports that by doing this, it will save notebook makers from rising Chinese labor costs. It also means we'll see very similar notebooks released next year, with vendors to adopt the same motherboards for 11- and 13-inch notebooks, with the same applied to 15- and 17-inch notebooks.
