In the News In a move that would certainly shake up the computer industry quite a bit, IBM is reportedly in talks with Sun Microsystems about the possibility of IBM acquiring Sun. Sun is going through hard times at the moment, and has been actively looking for someone to be acquired by.

Dell would make more sense...

Dell has been mentioned in the rumours too - and seems to make more sense than IBM. Sun's problem has often been that they are just very bad at selling the good stuff they make, Dell could help out there. There's also no high end overlap with Dell.
