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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
