Apple's MacBook Pro refresh gets company 4th place in global shipments of laptops

Apple's Macbook lineup continues to see strong growth in the third quarter of 2017.

Data from market research firm TrendForce suggests that Apple shipped 4.43 million MacBooks in July, August and September. The 11 percent increase in MacBook sales actually beat the quarterly growth of the laptop market. TrendForce believes the launch of the 2017 MacBook Pro models in June helped boost sales in the three months.

As a result, Apple overtook ASUS to become the fourth-largest brand of laptops in Q3 2017. The top three brands are HP, Lenovo and Dell. Earlier this month, Apple announced that it had the best quarter ever for overall Mac sales with 25 percent revenue growth.
