Dell intends to tap the channel by selling unbadged computers which resellers can configure as their own.

Dell is, of course, the Great Satan of direct sales, but it uses resellers and distributors from time to time when circumstances make this the best solution. Its new 'white box' strategy specifically embraces dealers however, rather than considering them a sales route of the last resort.
