Dell doesn't even need a superior supply chain to beat the crap out of the competition, the company's rivals recently have done a pretty good job at taking themselves out. The PC and server manufacturer nonetheless in the last quarter posted record revenues of $13.5 b, a 17.3% increase over the same period last year.
The rise of Dell is so powerful that it caused IBM to sell its loss making PC and laptop business to Lenovo of China. And earlier this week HP fired CEO Carly Fiorina for her inability to turn the merged HP and Compaq into a leading technology company.
With two of Dell's largest competitors knocked out, celebrations must have erupted at the Dell headquarters in Texas. And it gave Dell CEO Kevin Rollins enough courage to declare $80 b in annual revenues as the next big target that he will be aiming for in a conference call with reporters. The company in the last for quarters combined posted $49.2 b in revenues.
