Dell Widens Business Computer Lead

By REUTERS, June 9, 1999

The Dell Computer Corporation, the top direct personal computer supplier, widened its lead in the American small business market in the first quarter, capturing 19.7 percent of personal computer shipments, the company said Tuesday.

Citing newly published statistics from market research firm International Data Corporation of Framingham, Mass., Dell said its 20 percent share of the domestic small business market compares with a 14.2 percent share in the first quarter of 1998.

The International Datareport showed that Dell, based in Round Rock, Tex., shipped nearly twice as many PCs to small and medium-sized businesses as its nearest rival in the field, the International Business Machines Corporation, which had a 10.7 percent share, up from 9.2 percent in the first quarter of 1998, according to IDC analyst John Brown.

The Compaq Computer Corporation, which a year ago ranked No. 1 in United States small business shipments, sank to No. 3 in the first quarter of 1999. Its deliveries during the quarter slumped to 10 percent from 18.4 percent in the year-ago quarter, amid recent turmoil in the Houston company's business PC strategy.
