Hardware, Embedded Systems Having Michael Dell back at the helm of his namesake company hasn't paid any quick dividends when it comes to market share. According to Gartner Research, Dell continued its slide both in the US and worldwide during the first quarter of 2007, while HP opened up an even-wider lead. Interesting in these results is that you can clearly see that Apple's strongest market is still the United States.

I think the Dell desktops are great, but they have to do something with their notebooks.

Erm...

Laptop throwing contest? (To be held alongside the floppy and CD throwing contests)

They could strip the back lights out of the screens and use them as room lighting?

How about selling dodgy exploding batteries to terrorists on the cheap?

or selling the on board speakers to 'A Clockwork Orange' enthusiasts.

failing the above, they could turn them all on during the winter as a form of very inefficient heating.

Any further ideas, please post at: http://www.ideastorm.com/. All comments appreciated ;)

I think it's just the opposite...I live and die by their notebooks but have heard horror stories about desktops blowing up and whatnot. To each their own, but their Lattitudes are incredible bang for the buck.

We have a lot of their desktops at work, and none of them has failed us. The laptops i have seen just don't feel very solid, and they look awful.
