Quarterly results released by industry analysts on Thursday reported that Dell Computer Corporation currently holds the number-1 position in worldwide computer shipments. IDC and Gartner Inc. reported that Dell shipped nearly 6 million units during the first quarter, about 500,000 more than the next systems supplier. The reports include all shipments of servers, notebooks, and desktop systems. "Our customers trust us to deliver the best products and services to meet the needs of their enterprises, whether they are operating multi-national companies or e-mailing a child's photo from a home system," said Michael Dell, chairman and CEO. "Our goal is to provide unprecedented value and service to all customers, and today's rankings are positive validation that we are achieving that goal." One of Dell's top competitors, HP, immediately released a response to the PC market share data published by IDC on Thursday. "As we have consistently said, the number-1 market share position is a two-horse race between HP and Dell, and the see-saw battle will continue well into the future," said Jim McDonnell, vice president of marketing, HP Personal Systems Group. "HP and Dell are virtually neck and neck for the third consecutive quarter with just over 500,000 of the more than 34 million units shipped worldwide separating the two companies. "HP continues to hold a significant lead in key global markets such as Europe, with the No. 1 position at 20.6 percent share -- more than 50 percent greater than the nearest competitor," Mr. McDonnell continued. "In the long term, proven product innovation and competitive pricing, two of our strengths, will continue to play key roles in our industry, as demonstrated by the demand for our recently introduced Media Center PC and Tablet PC. And as we move forward, our strong international presence and the strength of our global network of partners will continue to provide real value to our customers -- and set us apart in the marketplace."
