Dell Drops Online Sales of Many AMD-Powered Machines

Susan Hall

Dell has stopped selling many computers with AMD processors online, though it will continue selling some through retailers, according to an Associated Press story on Newsvine.


AMD wooed the company for years before finally breaking Intel's hold on Dell offerings in 2006. Dell digital media manager Lionel Menchaca said the company tweaks its selection all the time and continues to sell some AMD-powered desktops, laptops and servers online.


Indeed, Dell has done a lot of rejiggering of its business model lately: moving to retail stores such as Wal-Mart and Staples, closing its kiosks and slashing its Canadian call center plans.


ZDNet blogger John Morris believes Dell might just be trying to clear some inventory, while his fellow blogger Larry Dignan says the company might be carving up the customer base rather than making any technology statement.
