HP overtaking Dell as top U.S. PC vendor no surprise to IBD readers

One of the big stories in the tech industry on Wednesday was the fact that Hewlett-Packard dethroned Dell as the No. 1 personal computer supplier in the U.S.
Investor’s Business Daily ran the story “Global No. 1 PC Seller HP Now Also Leading In U.S.” from yours truly on Wednesday night. Dell had been the top U.S. PC vendor for 10 years until last quarter, when HP shipped more PCs domestically.
The news was no surprise to IBD readers. On Feb. 5 posted my story “After Losing Global Lead, Dell Slipping In U.S.” That story addressed the factors why Dell would likely fall to No. 2 in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2009.
Ouch, I just broke my arm.
