Dell shifts from Limerick to Poland. Check the link below

This change is a continuation in the changing paradigm at Dell. For one it started selling computers through a third party (Walmart) last year. Dell has traditionally been strong in the B2B segment. The move to retail computers through Walmart was probably to take a pie in the individual consumer market. This decision could have been taken as Dell sees a reduced growth or stagnation in the B2B market.

In the individual consumer segment (home segment) the major differentiation is on price, except for Apple of course. This is forcing Dell to look at all possible sources to save money. This includes shifting to a different location and even getting more work done by its vendors. This is a new game for Dell. And like I had written in an earlier post, it is too early to say if Dell will thrive in this change.
