This week, Dell revealed that it squeaked by financial estimates, continued to gain market share, and saw its revenues jump 16 percent as the company posted net income of $677 million on sales of $10.62 billion last quarter. Dell's numbers are incredible. The company saw revenue from servers, workstations, and storage systems rise 28 percent in the quarter; it lowered operating costs from 9.9 percent to 9.7 percent; and it grew almost 20 percent in Europe (30 percent worldwide). Dell also expanded into new markets--including printers and consumer electronics--during the quarter, and analysts now expect the company to dominate or have a huge presence in those markets as well. Dell says it expects about $11.5 billion in sales for the current quarter.
