But, according to research from Digitimes Research, shipments fell by an average of 15 percent.
The slump in shipments affected not only the branded vendors like HP, Dell and the like, but also the top three original design manufacturers (ODMs) – those are manufacturers which make unbranded machines.
The researchers believe the fall was caused because many companies released cheaper notebooks in September.
HP, in particular, suffered a decline in shipments while dell, Asustek and Lenovo also showed a fall compared to the same month in 2013.
The researchers believe that HP will see its notebook business suffer in 2015 as a result of the decision to split the company in two.
