Dell dumps WebPC after less than a year

Published on .

Dell Computer Corp.'s Home & Small Business unit has pulled the plug on its WebPC, a stylish consumer PC launched in November with a splashy multimedia campaign created by Lowe Lintas & Partners Worldwide, New York. Insiders said the WebPC's price, from $999 to $2,349, was a factor in its slow sales. Later this month, Dell will introduce new Dimension PCs, which sport an appearance similar to the WebPC.
