    ASUS To Completely End Manufacturing of its Motherboards, Notebooks by Pegatron
    ASUS and Pegatron are headed for a complete split as far as motherboards and notebooks are concerned. Following reports of ASUSTek divesting in its former part and partner after split, Pegatron, ASUS plans to end manufacturing of its motherboards by it. Pegatron is a notable ODM of motherboards, notebooks, AIO PCs, and other PC components. ASUS is also working to get its notebooks manufactured by ODMs such as Foxconn, Quanta, and Compal, while reducing its orders to Pegatron. This move could see further independence of ASUS and Pegatron from each other.

    no, it means ASUS is looking for another OEM to manufacture thier boards for them.

    atleast that's the way I read it.
    Animalpak and jman20nnsss say thanks.

    As barbaricsoul says they will just go to another OEM. They are far too big to just exit the market.
