During its FQ1 earnings call (webcast), Dell admits its 10% Y/Y drop in notebook sales had much to do with tablet cannibalization (more with consumers, but also among businesses). Dell also claims price competition (especially in emerging markets) hurt PC sales, and an inefficient sales structure affected enterprise sales. Also, it adds April was particularly weak, and some enterprises are delaying IT purchases. DELL -12% AH. HPQ -2.5%. INTC -1.1%. (presentation - PDF).

    Enterprises are delaying IT purchases. Why? WWDC. Mac hardware.

    They forgot to mention that the Inspiron now sucks. This used to be an incredibly well made box with lots of choices and customization - now not so much. I shopped the last week and chose an ASUS - better all around for less money. This would never have happened 5 years ago.

     

    I was a big fan for many years but now they lost me and I suspect many others like me. There is something seriously wrong with this company and it hasn't been great for a while.
