Shuttle also reported losses of NT$34.24 million on exchange rate fluctuations.

Shuttle shipped 146,000 barebone systems in the first quarter.

AOpen, which is currently targeting barebones systems for the notebook market as well as the SFF market, saw its on-year revenues drop 22% and reported margins of 6%.

The company shipped 50,000 barebone systems in the firs quarter.
