Description:: bonch writes "Nine years after Michael Dell said he'd shut down Apple and give the money to the shareholders, Apple has passed Dell in market value, at $72,132,428,843 compared to Dell's $71,970,702,760. Analysts expect Apple to continue to outperform competitors, citing 2006 as 'poised to be the year of both iPod growth and, more importantly, Mac market share gains,' with earnings growing more than 35%. I should have bought stock two years ago!" We talked about the approach of this moment back in November of last year.

Yeah, like it might be time to buy a Dell DJ! I don't see Dell doing anything to really move it forward. Dell's "great idea" was to put together cheaper computers than anyone else. Focusing in on just-in-time inventory control was there real "great idea" - back in the mid to late 90's. Better computer network systems and a greater adoption of JIT is now wide spread and not so new.

What do they have coming out that could push them to the next level? They have been trying to make enterprise in roads in terms of servers. I know several companies that three years ago would say get a Dell switch, server, etc and now are regretting that decision and sticking with Cisco network gear and other (HP, IBM, Sun) servers.

As much as I love Apple, if ever there was a sign of a bubble this is it.
