When a new product is launched at Apple, motivated buyers will form queues circling a city block to get their  hands on the latest product. By comparison, there isn't the same excitement when Dell launches a new product. Both Apple and Dell make great products. That is their 'What'. Both companies employ talented engineers to create those...
