Hardware, Embedded Systems A sedate Dell posted fourth quarter results that didn't horrify investors even though its PC and notebook sales fell in dramatic fashion. Dell reported USD 14.4bn in revenue down from USD 15.2bn in the same period last year. The company's net income came in at USD 673m, which marks quite the fall from last year's haul of USD 1bn. Officials declined to face off against financial analysts and discuss the results in a conference call as is customary, primarily because Dell counts its fourth quarter results as 'preliminary' due to a pair of investigations into its past accounting.

it's about to bounce back

I agree with most of the comments above.
Dell screwed up on customer service, ability to listen to customer needs, price on the high end, and the server side. Basically they hit the ground and it can't get worse. I believe that with michael back in charge, a lot of mea culpa they are about to bounce back. They still have plenty of cash and as they say, the bugs are out of the system..
