Cisco buying Dell: Allan Leinwand's idea is brilliant

Perhaps the GigaOM blogger and Panorama Capital partner has solved Cisco's consumer riddle.

Allan Leinwand - GigaOM blogger and Panorama Capital partner believes he has the solution for Cisco's consumer ambition: Why Cisco Should Buy Dell Leinwand offers 3 compelling reasons for Cisco to buy Dell: 1. Cisco can afford it. 2. Cisco would instantly be in the consumer laptop, desktop, printer and monitor business. 3. Cisco would now triumph over HP. I've got to admit, Leinwand's idea is brilliant. And why do I think that? Well, I just get so excited thinking about all the new councils, boards, working groups and committees Cisco could create by adding Dell's product portfolio.

What's your take, do agree with me that Leinwand's idea of Cisco buying Dell is brilliant? BradReese.Com Cisco Refurbished - Services that protect, maintain and optimize Cisco hardware Contact: Brad Reese | Twitter:
