What Will Dell Look Like In Four Years? What's The Mix Of Enterprise, PCs, And Mobile Devices?
That's really hard to say. We see the value of the broad portfolio of products. To be honest, we'll continue to make investments to play a leadership role in the PC business and end-user computing and devices. We think that's an important part of a portfolio. It's not a part of the business we are trying to shrink. We continue to make large investments in R&D and sales capacity around the enterprise solutions and business services. So, what we have seen over the last three to four years is that part of the market is growing faster. We've made investments that have accelerated our growth in those markets -- in many cases faster than the rest of the market. That would suggest that enterprise solutions and business services would grow to be a bigger part of Dell's business in the years ahead. I think that will continue. But, by no means is that a statement about our commitment, or lack of commitment, to our PC business.
