Dell & PC World

hi guys, just a thought, How would you feel about buying Dell pcs in a PC World Store?

Whats the difference between Dell selling their products in PC World or anywhere else. Mesh, Gateway, Acer and an host of other manufacturers sell through other party companies.PC World do not manufacture computers, they only act as retailers, who are making a profit from someone else's product.

Have you heard whispers ;o)

Providing the guarantees were the same and you got support from Dell not PCW for problems and if they were the same price as Dell selling direct then why not.
I did used to think that Dell only sold direct to the public but I have seen them selling on some of the shopping channels so its probably a possability.

To be honest, it wouldn't bother me.

I've always had excellent service from PC World, and it would just add another make to choose from.

Would the technical support still come from Dell?

  pcw Manager!!??! 20:37 13 Dec 2007

prob not as PC World would buy in from Dell and I guess Techguys would support product. Dell offer tel and rtb warranty where as techguys offer instore, tel and in home so I guess it wouldnt make much difference.... would it?

Well that is good news for some customers.

Is the price in PCW going to be the same as you would get buying direct from Dell?

Should be good for their sales!
