Ok, so time to join together and buy lots of Apple stuff so Dell looks silly with its slump.
Oops. Sorry pknz, I just bought a Dell 2407FPW.
I'd better put an Apple sticker on it then...
Dell slumped because it actually has started to lose its steam. Apple slumped due to lack of good publicity.
uh, not quite. there is a general slowdown in computer purchases overall.
Apple "slumped" because it is in transition.
And the Apple transition is going to be the death of Dell.
When people wake up and realize that Apple can use BOTH Windoze and OSX on one elegantly designed computer, they are going to coming Mac running.
Buy aapl now. While you can.
I doubt it will kill Dell.
People never believed that Ford and GM could die for a long time as well...now they're blasting their way ahead into bankruptcy.
As long as you went out and paid for the sticker. It didnt just come free with a previous Apple product did it?
well it is always a slow time of year right now for computer sells. Tech confercens are all coming (not just apples a lot happen around the same time just apples is the only one people really know about) product annoncemenst happen at the time.
Right now gradutation is over so those gifts are already boughten and the fall school sales have not start up yet. People will start buying them next month. Consumer credit is starting to tighten up and computers are a luxury item. The current ones people own will keep on working for what they need them to do so those replacements are down. The industry as a whole is down. Apple is down because the industry is down. Most people dont really follow apple or wait until the WWDC or really even know about it. This is just a slow time of the year for computers and it worse than normal due to money being short.
The same was said of Atari back in the 80's...
I guess your right, OutThere.
I would love to see Dell die.
they're still not dead. it's not over yet for them. people thought chrysler was gone back in the early 1980s. people thought ibm was done for back in the early 1990s. they're both still around.
Dell has been disappointing analysts big time.
