Good decision by Dell! This way they can operate more firmly in their own way rather than having to worry about volatile stock market. A fact that PC and Laptop industry is moving downward this move was a good strategy to keep themselves immune.

I'm still amazed to this day that Dell has even got their heads above water.
I can speak to experience with their laptops, and even the Streak.
Every single laptop I've gotten from Dell, has broke with in 4 months.
I know that isn't the case for everyone, but I think that is flat out not acceptable.
On top of the sub par hardware they sell, their customer service has been nothing but a joke.

Dell use to be a quality company, but trying to satisfy stock investors rather than invest in quality R&D killed them. They started making cheap products using the quality name they built in the past and the cheap products caused their stock and their name to fail. Hopefully they can reinvest in the quality type of machines that they used to build in the mid 1990's

I deal with Dell products on a daily basis. Servers, workstations, laptops and printers. I have seen some lemons, there have been some motherboards with faulty diods but all in all the support has been great. Allbeint i deal mainly with Gold level support and not the average home user support (which is sub'd to overseas and is, lets just say, difficult). I doubt the PC will go away because of the surge in tablets and mobile devices. If nothing else, the need for servers still remains. Im not an HP fan but their servers build software was easier to use then Dell's. In any case, I hope Dell is able to get his company back. Im interested in seeing where he takes it.
