Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg at the World Economic Forum, Dell explained why his company exited last summer's bidding war with HP over 3Par. ""We showed a good discipline and didn't take an emotional decision," he said. HP paid "way too much" for 3Par, added the CEO, who compared the deal to the $960 million Dell paid for storage firm Compellent (CML) in December.

Dell also confirmed that his company has more M&A up its sleeve. "We are looking at more acquisition opportunities in software, data centers, cloud computing, storage and virtualization," he said.
