In Australia, buying a Dell laptop is still a lot cheaper than buying other brands.  I wonder how come no one else has been able to match Dell in cheap PC/Laptop making.

Cutting out the middle-men and selling direct to the customers: no shops, no sales agents ...

RE: jetsam

I find the Dell desktops  have smart designs like those clips that clip on the circuit boards and the slim boxes.

And if I want to buy a top end laptop, say 2G ram with a 256M graphics card, it is a lot cheaper and easier to go on to the Dell website and custom build it myself.

I know about the battery scare with dell, but overall their products are pretty good and I certainly have no complaint,  most big coporations and government departments in Australia are using them.

I think the direct sales to Customers, cutting out the middle men and the website which allow custom build products work well for them.  And their clever marketing (constantly having sales), well designed website helped as well.

May be the Chinese government should do what the Korean government does for their car manufacturers and support Lenovo in everyway to make it a successful Chinese company which export globally.

No, it is not so cheap!

At least, Dell computers are more expensive than DIY!

may it will help

you know how long it is to have the business structure like DEll have , even if a company has the similar structure like Dell does, they can't catch up Dell only if the company with some sort of competitive structure to overrun them .
it is easy to copy from the surface like what Dell do (direct sell),but the culure and value thing is very hard to copy.
