Never mind GPUs, cheap laptops like Chromebooks might be in very short supply soon

There’s some worrying news on the grapevine when it comes to laptop shipments, with a report claiming that many notebook manufacturers are going to fall well short in terms of supplying portables to would-be buyers, given the current high demand for PCs in general, combined with well-documented chip shortages.

The report from DigiTimes – a prolific source of hardware rumors, although not always the most reliable – claims that we could witness laptop makers fall short of orders by 30% to 50% in terms of the number of notebooks actually shipped in the second quarter (which we are, of course, now in).
