NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- This week, we turned to TheStreet.com readers to gauge their thoughts on the recent onslaught of deal announcements. Out of five selected announced acquisitions, we asked readers: "After the dust settles on the following deals, which do you think will end up being best for investors?"

Apparently, readers weren't as fond of Dell's ( DELL) announced plan for Perot Systems ( PER) (garnering 12% of the votes) or Baker Hughes's ( BHI) takeover of BJ Services ( BJS) (14% of the votes). The same goes for Abbott Labs's ( ABT) play for Solvay's Pharmaceutical unit (17% of the votes) and Disney's ( DIS) attempts to procure Marvel ( MVL) and its vast catalog of characters like Spiderman and The Hulk (21% of the votes).

Instead, readers gave the nod to Xerox's ( XRX) plan to wrangle Affiliated Computer Services ( ACS), a deal that nabbed 37% of the vote.

Part of the reason for the voters' approval may lie in the deal's simple rationale. Echoing the Dell/Perot Systems combination, Xerox looks to be bolstering its services revenue by acquiring the IT services concern. Reports have discussed the demands of customers looking for operations that can offer both hardware and services, turning traditional tech shops into all-encompassing providers for businesses looking to cut costs in light of the economic downturn.

Part of the reason for the voters' approval may lay in the deal's simple rationale. Echoing the Dell/Perot Systems combination, Xerox is looking to triple its services revenue next year by acquiring the IT services concern. Several reports have discussed that customers are demanding more out of their IT operations, looking for those that can offer both hardware and services. With the $6.4 billion deal for ACS, which is slated over the next three years to offer between $300 million and $400 million in synergies, Xerox got the message.

"Xerox will benefit from margin expansion and strong revenue and earnings growth," Xerox CEO Ursula Burns said during a conference call. "In acquiring ACS, Xerox is changing its business with the evolving demand in the marketplace."
