Dell, the world's largest PC manufacturer, has released an upbeat financial statement and said that strong PC sales during the Christmas holiday period met the company's revenue forecasts.
"We expected to have strong sales in the holiday season, and they were kindof like we expected," said chief executive Michael Dell, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
According to Bloomberg News, Dell said: "We're growing our business pretty much in every geography, in every customer region, and our business is solid."
Dell said that sales had been particularly strong in China and Japan. He added that customer satisfaction issues that had been dogging the company had been addressed.
"We've taken out about five million support calls with proactive engineering to make the products more reliable," he said.
