Apple Worth 2x Dell's Market Value

post #1 of 151
Thread Starter 
Short article so I'll just post the whole thing

Quote:
On October 6, 1997, in response to the question of what he'd do if he was in charge of Apple Computer, Dell founder and then CEO Michael Dell stood before a crowd of several thousand IT executives and answered flippantly, "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders."

A little more than a month later, on November 10, 1997, new Apple iCEO Steve Jobs responded, speaking in front of an image of Michael Dell's bulls-eye covered face, "We're coming after you, you're in our sights."

On January 13, 2006, after a little more than eight years of hard work, Apple Inc. passed Dell, Inc. in market value, $72,132,428,843 vs. $71,970,702,760 at market close respectively.

Today, in intraday NASDAQ trading, Apple's market value passed 2 times that of Dell's, $127.81 billion vs. $63.65 billion.

Got any snappy retorts for that one, Mr. Dell?

Well in computer land at least Dell obviously wins...( I don't care how bad they are) But Apple has a wider range of market to sell stuff to thanks to the ipod and iphone and whatnot.
'bout time.

Computer vs computer, Dell wins.

Ipod vs Jukebox, Apple wins. Which isn't hard since the jukebox looks and works like crap.

Take their PC departments and I think Dell will still be in the lead...by quite a bit.

I think that's a strong possibility.

Either way, it's like saying my Chevy Citation is twice as good as your Dodge Omni..... they both (insert verb here).

I'd say computer vs. computer, Apple wins..
I'd never trade my MBP for some Dell notebook.

Apple shipped 1.76 million Macs this quarter. Link
I'm not sure how many Dell sold though, but I'd like to know.

iPod was a major part of it though. Selling 9.82 million iPods this quarter.
