Dell is going to sell PC's at Wal-mart - Page 3

post #21 of 34
It seems fitting somehow.
And the whole linux thing? I can just imagine...
"Hey Martha!"
"Yes, Bill?"
"We can get this free operating system that looks just like Windows!"
"Really? Is it easy to use?"
"Who cares, it's free."

What's worse is the thought of grandma writing GUIs. I thought cookies were the only things that were supposed to be GUI in grandma's house. Other than the stuff she puts her dentures on with.

I think this is a very good idea...

Most people (90%) prefer a prebuilt PC...Dell is a big name and most people would like to have one would be more apt to buy one at a local walmart than to call and order one...

I build PC's as a second business and high-end overclocking, gaming pc's are only about 5%-10% of the market if that...general use PC's make up the rest and that my friends is where the money is at...

I use Dell for my general use clients...I just order them and charge a small set-up fee...I can move alot more of them that way then trying to compete price wise...

I would rather do this than sell nothing and make nothing...

people want the most they can get for the cheapest price and they dont care whats in the box so trying to convince most to buy something more expensive isnt going to work...

plus if I build it...I am customer support...If I pass on a Dell...they have their own support...I just set them up and let them know if they have any problem to call support (not that they need to if you set them up right) and they couldnt be happier...

ROFL. I can picture it - a giant room with a bunch of broken (or standard issue... same thing) Dell's that are piled up in a heap. There is a sign above the pile hanging from the ceiling that says "The only thing that surpasses quality at Dell is our Customer Service". Too bad the group of idiot employees that don't know a thing about computers can't see the irony of the sign, which has an irony in itself.

If it lost money, Walmart wouldn't do it. Dell needs customers who are afraid of the internet...this gets them. They trust Walmart.

Excellent point. Persons whom are oblivious to how computers work make excellent candidates for Dell, especially at Walmart.
