Staples to Carry Dell Computers
The office supply giant Staples announced this week that it will begin selling Dell computers and other products at its 1,400 stores nationwide. According to the AP, Staples is now the only office-supply dealer to sell Dell PCs.
Dell, having lost the #1 spot in PC market share to HP in 2006, has begun moving away from its previous direct-mail-only model. Earlier this year, it began selling its products at Wal*Mart locations. As part of a brand relaunch, Dell introduced a new line of multi-colored Inspiron laptops in June.
The Dell products will begin appearing Nov. 11.
