I'm about to get into serious trouble with DELL. AMZN's earnings have scared the shit out of me. Does DELL really stand a chance to get to 50 before earnings. I need some comfort tonight.

Ok, I understand. However, you should still form
an idea of what price point is profitable in order
to reach a reasonable conclusion.
from what I've observed, the manufacturers that are
NOT selling PCs in the sub-$900 range (most notably
Dell and Gateway) are also the fastest growing and
What's up with that ? It
would seem, so far, that low cost PCs have been black
holes sucking the profit out of the companies that get
close to them.

Korean manufacturers that dumping PCs in the U.S. could
make a lot of money eventually, probably just for a
few people at the top, but that would be the people
that matter. They're losing money on every machine but
the money came easily from Japanese banks that are

I don't want to turn this into a hardware

Celeron 300A with S-spec SL-32A is perhaps one of the
best processor buys ever... It runs solid as a rock at

avid hardware person, so don't know much about
overclocking, etc.. But for hardcore hardware people...the
celeron is a top pick.. Just my $.02

Blockbuster Video is at it again, he is the CEO of Republic
Industries which is revolutionizing the car business. The
stock has formed a bottom and is now starting to trend
upward. Excellent MACD reading on it, great upward
potential, take a look, ticker is "AN". They have assembled
an top notch management team and the stock looks
like it's going to move up.
