Two sources have told us Dell is starting the expected huge layoff programme this week, claiming numbers will be north of 15,000.*
The company is returning to private ownership to restructure its operations in the wake of a falling PC market, a commoditisation of the server market and a perceived need to better serve enterprises with their ever-increasing mobile and cloud-focused IT requirements.
Does the brand of computer even matter anymore? Â For years Dell stood for quality but now, does anyone care if you computer comes from? Â It is the same components, technology, and operating system as the next guy and if the next company is cheaper, why not go with them? Â If you want a premium brand, you go with Apple.
