Global sales generated by the Internet are exceeding $5 million each day, which represents about $2 billion annually. The Round Rock, TX, company is operating about 3,000 premier pages, or private Web sites for corporate customers.


Revenue growth was strong across the board, outpacing average market growth by three to six times in every geographic region that Dell has operations.


Chairman and CEO Michael S. Dell said the results rank Dell first in worldwide profits, second in worldwide revenue and third in worldwide units among PC companies, based on the latest reported financial results and estimates of industry analysts.
