There's a New Boss in PC Town
There have been a lot of PC leaders in the past. IBM made a run for the crown,
and further back we had the likes of Kaypro, Osborne, Eagle and the very cool
Vector Graphics microcomputers.
HP (with Compaq under its belt) is now the clear and decided leader, and its
recently gained edge over Dell is growing
quarter by quarter. HP now has 17 to 18 percent of the worldwide market
while Dell has 14 to 15 percent.
I contributed to HP's success when I bought my daughter a new laptop late last
year. It turns out that replacing the screen on her old Toshiba was almost as
much as a new lapper. Whadda ya bid for a sweet Toshiba with a dead display?
