Apple is slowly pulling ahead of PC manufacturing giant Dell in terms of company value. While Dell and other Windows box manufacturers deal with the impact of the delay of Microsoft's forthcoming Vista operating system, Apple's new range of XP-friendly Intel-powered Macs (with Boot Camp) continues to attract attention. To boost attention even further, Apple has launched a new campaign to urge Windows users to 'go Mac'.
Meanwhile the two companies' respective stock prices ($71.62 a share for Apple and $25.43 for Dell) reveal that Apple is - at least for now - the more valuable company. Dell's market value is $ 59,850,064,460, while Apple right now is worth $ 60,777,591,440. While the value of shares can fall as well as rise, the figures confirm the value of Apple's slowly growing marketshare.
