Global notebook PC shipments exceeded those of desktops on a quarterly basis for the first time ever in the third quarter, according to market research firm iSuppli.

Notebook PC shipments hit 38.6 million units in 3Q 2008, an almost 40% increase compared with the same period in 2007. Desktop PC shipments declined by 1.3% for the same period to 38.5 million units.

Worldwide PC shipments rose 15.4% compared to 3Q 2007, with 79 million units shipped.

PC manufacturer rankings remained unchanged for the quarter. Hewlett-Packard maintained its lead in the market with shipments of 14.9 million units and a market share of 18.8%. HP was still followed, in order, by Dell, Acer, Lenovo and Toshiba.

Beyond the top five OEMS, iSuppli noted that Apple lost almost half a point of market share on a sequential basis at 3.2%, placing it seventh overall in total PC shipments.
