I'm surprised that Pegatron got the contract seeing as they are Asus's contractor buiding laptops and (ironically) the Asus Transformer - which they have been unable to produce in large quantities for quite some time.
Apple needs quantity (and generally not quality) in order to maintain their business case and profit, and based on Asus's issues, I can't see Pegatron delivering.
So, maybe this first batch is a small one, just to see the thru-put and productivity before signing off on a big contract.
Asus also better watch themselves. I'm sure their production will be impacted upon just to make the earth move for Apple
