Top three saw 10 per cent boost

Beancounters at Digitimes Research have added up some numbers and divided them by their shoe size and come up with some good news for notebook manufacturers.

The worldwide top five notebook brand vendors' combined shipments grew eight percent in November and the top three ODMs saw their notebook shipments increased 10 percent.

This was mostly thanks to rising sales from North America during Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions.

Among the top five brand vendors, HP and Asustek had better performances than the others in November. HP's shipments grew strongly, reaching the second highest level so far in 2016.

The growth also further extended the US based vendor's shipment gap with the second largest being Lenovo, with around one million units.

Asustek saw strong shipments in its mainstream and key notebooks in November, giving it a rebound from its disappointing October numbers. This meant it achieved 40 percent on month growth. The company's November shipments have been the highest in 2016 so far.

Quanta achieved the best performance with an on month shipment growth of over 30 percent, since it made the Apple's MacBook Pro. Quanta was the best selling ODM in November, surpassing last month's leader Compal.
