    You can only sell at discount for so long.

    Innovation and service is key.

    And once again Apple has a larger market cap than Dell...by over 10%.

    Should we dredge up Michael Dell's comments about how Apple should liquidate and give the money back to its shareholders again?

    I wonder if Michael Dell can be ousted from his own company.

    No Gateway was the one with the cow, I don't think he's doing so well either.;)

    Interestingly, Gateway (along with HP and Apple) are gaining market share at the expense of Dell.

    Some of the stock analysts point to internal disarray over at Round Rock as one big factor in their slide. I'm sure their declining reputation for tech support/customer service doesn't help, nor do the delays for Vista.

    No, I don't like to eat meat that is contaminated by mad cow disease. ;) :D


    I love the ad that is on the webpage promoting the Windows to Mac virus ratio (114,000 to 0). :D

    The stock market means nothing. Stock price is not an indicator of company health. It's a manufactured and manipulated number that only serves the legalized gamblers on wall street and talking heads of "news" shows on basic cable.

    Dell is going to be fine, trust me. Take off the party hats and go back to your lives. :)

    If I were Micheal Dell, "I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders."

    It's interesting that their short term strategy to drive everyone else out of the market has finally started to cannibalise them as well.

    Now, if they have to raise prices to compensate, it will look bad for them. If they take away hardware, they'll hide it well, but someone will notice and it will look bad for them.

    In any case, it's time for HP to respond quickly.

    Dell would be following in Apple's footsteps, but with its leader at the helm of the company and no saviour in sight.

    When I had a Dell (no longer own one thank God), everytime that I called their tech support I just wanted to take the Dell PeeCee and throw it out of my window. :mad:

    True. :)
