Dell Inc.’s (NASDAQ: DELL) personal-computer business has seen good growth and the company has no plans to exit it, Steve Felice, the company’s president of consumer, small and medium businesses, said Tuesday. “We love the PC business,” Dell’s Felice said. “It’s part of the full set of solutions that we have as a company and we are very committed to that business.” In August, the world’s largest PC maker, Hewlett-Packard Co., said it planned to sell or spin off its PC business. Dell will benefit from HP’s potential exit from the segment, Felice added, “because a lot of corporate customers are going to be concerned about the consistency of their relationship and the service that’s required and Dell’s going to be their channel partners. I see lots of opportunities for us with Hewlett-Packard’s exit,” Felice said.
