Dell Retail in Canada
Dell this morning revealed that Canada would be the next to see the fruits of its retail initiative. Beginning late this week, the company will sell several of its desktop and notebook models in multiple large retailers for the country, including Best Buy, Future Shop, and Staples. The exact mixture of systems will vary by store but should include the Inspiron 530, its slimline 530s equivalent, and the XPS 420 for desktops; notebooks will include both the Inspiron 1525 as well as the XPS M1330 (pictured) and M1530.
Displays will also be part of the offering and will largely emphasize budget screens, with the 19-inch S199WFP and the 22-inch E228WFP available at Future Shop and an unknown lineup of 19-, 22-, and 24-inch LCDs at its sibling Best Buy store. Exact specs and prices for the systems weren't included as part of the release but are known to center around the low and mid range of Dell's previously online-only catalog.
