Asustek is not the only company reporting impressive netbook sales. MSI expects that it could ship up to 700,000 MSI Wind netbooks, significantly higher than the company had first predicted back in June.

Demand from Europe and Southeast Asia for the year’s fourth quarter could give the company its highest shipment volume since the introduction of the Wind. The upcoming release of the MSI Wind U120 could also help the company exceed expectations.
