The worldwide top-5 notebook brands saw their combined shipments slip 13% on month in October 2019, better than that of the same month a year ago, thanks to some lingering seasonal demand and some brand vendors' strong enterprise product shipments, according to Digitimes Research.

Hewlett-Packard's (HP) shipments plunged 16% on month in October due to its business restructuring and layoff. Lenovo had an over 20% on-month decline in the month because of China's weak domestic demand, Digitimes Research's numbers show.

Dell was the only top-5 brand enjoying an on-month growth in October as a result of its strong sales in North America's enterprise market. Dell also surpassed Lenovo to become the second largest brand in the month in terms of shipments.

The top-3 notebook ODMs saw their combined shipments drop in a scale similar to that of the top-5 brands in October with Quanta Computer producing the best results as its orders from HP had the least decline compared to those of its competitors.
