Who wants to be in the PC business? Not Dell
Have you noticed that it’s just not so cool to be in the PC business these days?
Granted, it’s been no secret that the PC industry has been taking it on the chin for more than a year. With a down economy and people excited about new, smaller devices like tablets and smartphones, companies and individual consumers simply aren’t spending as much money on desktops and laptops these days.
And just a little more than a year ago, Hewlett-Packard, which still clings to the moniker of top PC maker worldwide, announced that executives were considering selling its PC manufacturing business. While HP later decided to keep the business, the possibility created a major stir in the industry.
Now this week, Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell, said during a conference sponsored by Fortune that the "new Dell" really isn’t in the PC business anymore.
That’s a pretty surprising statement from the man who runs the fourth-largest PC manufacturer in the world.
