    Dell (DELL -2.2%) has grown about 20% over the past two quarters and is on pace to bring in more than $60B in revenue this year, CEO Michael Dell says at Oracle OpenWorld. The company's new 5-inch Streak device is set to appear at Best Buy (BBY) next month.

    The latest American Customer Satisfaction Index gives Apple (AAPL) its highest-ever score - 86 out of 100 - in its 2010 survey (pdf). That’s nine points higher than Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Dell (DELL), and driven by the iPad, which apparently is even more satisfying than the Mac. AAPL closed at a new high today, +0.2% to $283.77.

    With a failed bid for 3Par (PAR) behind it, Dell (DELL) says it's working on its relationship with EMC (EMC) - though Dell's storage ambitions may have strained that revenue source. The shake-ups aren't over, as analysts forecast the next few deals in the storage sector.

    Combine Mark Hurd, who completed big purchases for H-P (HPQ -0.7%), with an acquisitive Oracle (ORCL +5.4%) - who recently wrapped its first big hardware buy in Sun Microsystems - and Oracle will get more active in a consolidating tech sector, analysts say. Possible targets: NetApp (NTAP), Dell (DELL), CSC. (earlier)

    Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou cuts the company's long-term sales growth target to 15% from its longstanding 30%, asking how many $60B companies with nearly 1M employees still set growth targets that high. Foxconn, which manufactures products for Apple (AAPL), Dell (DELL) and Nokia (NOK) among others, faces more than just success of size; Apple's growth hasn't offset slowing PC sales, and a spate of suicides forced the company to raise wages.

    Dell (DELL +1.8%) likely will use the $2B it didn't spend on 3Par (PAR) to build out its storage portfolio, and several potential acquisition targets are already moving higher on rumors: CommVault Systems (CVLT +4.1%), Isilon Systems (ISLN +2.8%), Compellent Tech (CML +7.3%) and Netezza (NZ +3.5%).

    H-P (HPQ +0.5%) wins the bidding war for 3Par (PAR +2.2%), as Dell (DELL +1.3%) says it "will not increase its most recent proposal to acquire 3PAR, and that Dell has ended its discussions regarding a potential acquisition. Dell is entitled to receive a $72M break-up fee from 3PAR upon the termination of its merger agreement." (PR)

    Dell (DELL +2.5%), which has until the end of today to match Hewlett-Packard's (HPQ +1.5%) $30/share offer for 3Par (PAR -0.5%), likely will make a new bid by the deadline, NY Post reports. Dell may seek to “change the rules,” perhaps offering shares, warrants or suggesting a joint venture.

    Analysts widely expect Dell (DELL) to drop its pursuit of 3Par (PAR) because it just doesn't have the ammo to keep up with H-P's (HPQ) climbing bids. Dell, which has until tomorrow to decide whether to match H-P's latest offer, says it's still assessing its options.

    The showdown between Dell (DELL) and H-P (HPQ) over 3Par (PAR) may be stealing the spotlight at the moment, but it pales in comparison to the bidding wars of the past.

    The price for 3Par (PAR +23.5%) is now more than 8X annual revenue of $240M, very rich for a company that has lost money every year since going public in 2007 and a stock that had been trading around $10. According to FT's Lex, 3Par would have to increase annual revenue sixfold by 2015 for H-P (HPQ -0.6%) or Dell (DELL +2%) to generate a respectable return.

    When it comes to H-P's (HPQ) pursuit of 3Par (PAR), sources say the company, which is sitting on a cash pile of nearly $15B, doesn't feel "any constraints;" in fact, H-P expects Dell (DELL) to try to top its latest offer and could decide to raise its bid once again.
