It is actually on its way back up.

There has been quite a bit writen about Dell on the Motley Fool lately.

 Dell Computer shares crept higher Friday, after the company reported
 a 2.6 percent gain in fourth-quarter profit, matching analysts'
 reduced estimates, as sales jumped by almost a third.

 Looking forward, Mike Kwatinetz, an analyst at Credit Suisse First
 Boston, said that the company should benefit as Microsoft (MSFT: news,
 msgs) rolls out Windows 2000. "Dell will be the prime beneficiary,
 followed by Compaq to a lesser degree," he offered.

 ...Dell has done a "major embrace of Linux over the last six months."


  "This is a blow-out quarter for most companies," said Megan
Graham-Hackett
  of S&P Equity Group.  "These are numbers that every company would die
for."

  Instead, Dell merely matched analysts' expectations, which in this
case had
  been lowered beforehand because of the company's January profit
warning.
