The NEC PCs made in Packard Bell factories will go on sale in the United States in July. Initially, Packard Bell will manufacture between 20,000 and 30,000 computers a month. If these units meet NEC's quality standards, high-volume production will start in the fall, according to the report.
NEC acquired a $450 million equity stake in Packard Bell last summer. Packard Bell officials would not comment on the report.
