Since few years I was wondering why Dell never sell their computer systems and other consumer goods (notebooks, desktops, LCD monitors or TVs etc) through any of the direct electronic stores (frys, bestbuy, circuit city, wal-mart) like HP, Compaq, Toshiba, Gateway, Apple, Fuzitsu or Acer does. Thats where the majority of the systems are sold to home end users and college students.
So far I only saw Costco selling Dell products other than direct Dell website. Today just happen to see the announcement that the Dell will sell its computers at Wal-Mart . This is a good sign for the company, this will also allow the company to bounce back on the market that it lost to HP and Apple recently. Hopefully we will see Dell products in rest of the electronic stores in coming days.
