Dell facts and statisticsPlease note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All Dell facts are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don't guarantee anything.
