According to
CEO Jerry Shen, Asus will ship between 11 and 13 million notebooks in 2009 and up to one million of them will be CULV-based ultraportables.

Total Asus notebooks sales are expected to jump 25 percent year-on-year, in spite of the fact that its netbook business has been losing market share to other, bigger vendors. Asus recently launched several CULV-based designs and they are just starting to appear in retail, so Asus is aiming to sell a million of them in just three and a half months.
