Dell's New Model

Which, apparently, is the same as every other PC maker on the planet all of a sudden. Forbes reports:
Desperate to revive growth, Dell is getting ready to hit the store shelves.

It's a risky move for Dell, which pioneered the direct-sales PC business and has made the strategy its hallmark. But as the onetime PC king's business has soured, the company has been signaling that it intends to make peace with the middlemen it has long competed against.

Dell has little choice. When the company reports preliminary first-quarter results next week, the former growth machine is expected to report a 24.4% drop in net income for the quarter ending in April; sales are expected to drop to $14 billion from $14.2 million during the year-ago quarter.
