Competition and Collaboration in the PC Industry: The Evolution of a Value Chain (C) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Dell clung to the top spot among PC makers in 2006, when it shipped just over 38 million computers-only about 20,000 more than rival Hewlett Packard (HP), which acquired Compaq in 2001. HP also reported gains in the fast growing notebook section, largely at the expense of Dell.

After HP and Dell, the next three biggest PC manufacturers in 2006 were all based outside the United States: Lenovo of China (which purchased IBM's PC department in 2001), Acer of Taiwan, and Toshiba of Japan. Analysts noted that competitors had found means to duplicate much of the operations of Dell. See also the An and B cases (UV1011 and UV1012).
