Michael Dell says confusion at HP has given Dell its opportunity

Michael Dell, founder and chief executive of Dell, said that the recent uncertainty at Hewlett-Packard has been good for Dell in landing new customers. HP is the world’s No. 1 PC maker, but its place in the market became uncertain when the previous CEO, Leo Apotheker, announced he would study whether to spin off the PC division. Since enterprise customers hate uncertainty, Dell said his list of new customers has been growing.
