  • Dell tops US PC chart, Compaq still Aust No 1

    The third quarter this year saw Dell for the first time ship more PCs in the US than archrival Compaq, as worldwide PC shipments increased by about 25 per cent over the same period last year. The direct PC seller increased its share of US shipments to 17.1 per cent, ahead of Compaq's 15.3 per cent, according to preliminary estimates announced last week by GartnerGroup's Dataquest market research unit.
