According to a post on DigiTimes, Quanta Computer has completed the development of a notebook with a thickness of 1-2cm (0.39-0.79 inches) and an entry-level price. Citing "industry sources" the piece goes on to say that:

Quanta is confident about the potential of the notebook, since it features higher quality than Micro-Star International's (MSI's) recently launched ultra-thin notebook and is lower priced than Apple's MacBook Air, two of the product's major competitors once it launches, noted the sources.

The article goes on to state that Quanta does not yet have a mass production schedule.

It's worth noting that Quanta has manufactured several Apple notebooks including the the new thin and light 17-inch MacBook Pro announced during Macworld Expo 2009 according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report.

While the new machine could be the rumored 15-inch MacBook Air revision it could just as easily be a PC notebook.
