Dell no longer views itself as a PC company, now preferring to pitch itself as a services and products provider that can cover a wide range of customer needs.

In the vendor's recent results the case was made for the benefits of pitching at the solutions market, particularly at the enterprise end of the spectrum.

The consumer PC market has been in the doldrums for the last 18 months and Dell said at the event that the plan was to focus more on enterprise and public markets.
