Dell eyeballing retail sales

[Image: Dell logo]After a considerable amount of time in online sales, Dell is looking to get into retail locations. The change in direction comes as Michael Dell believes that the demand for laptops warrants a retail location. People prefer the ability to touch the computers with laptops, and online sales do not offer that.

One of the key points that I saw brought up in the slashdot discussion is that Dell computers are the most hideous boxes ever created. The cases are nothing that anyone would leave visible. HP seems to have gotten the laptop design down, now Dell just needs to learn from them. (Neither company is any good at designing desktops.)
