Dell will begin to sell its desktop PCs and notebooks in Dick Smith's retail stores, it was announced today. Beginning 6 May, Dell will sell its Inspiron 15 and Studio 15 laptops as well as its Studio One 19 all-in-one desktop PC in Dick Smith's top 70 stores, expanding the computer manufacturer's retail reach in Australia.

While Dell has traditionally been reliant on its online presence to sell computers and other electronics to consumers and enterprises, it has spent the last year reaching beyond its online-only strategy into physical retail outlets. It currently sells desktop PCs and notebooks in Good Guys stores, as well as Officeworks and its technology subsidiary Harris Technology. It also operates kiosks in shopping centres around Australia.

Dell's general manager of consumer sales and marketing, Evan Williams, spoke toARN , revealing that the computer manufacturer had been committed to both its online and retail presence over the past 12 months. “Looking at the retailers, each one has a different mix of customers and as we go through the partners, we will continue to address a different part of the market as much as possible," he said.

Williams also said that Dell would continue to expand its presence in Dick Smith's 400 retail stores. "Over the next several months in Australia, we will add more personalisation options, launch more products and expand our retail presence through our new partnership with Dick Smith," he said today.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
