Dell's recent improvements in its profits
show that rather than making money from its restructuring it is making cash back
thanks to falling component costs.
According to ZDNet, Apple got a huge bump on cheap component prices. It pocketed most of the gain as well and got away with it.
Dell, is being looked at a little more closely because component prices are expected to rise again and cause the PC maker a few headaches.
It seems that the outfit knows this is happening and is saving all its cash for a rainy day. It could however be reducing the price of its products to stimulate demand. Many analysts said the saving for problems later is not really that sensible for Dell.
