"...the closer you areto the integrator that hands it to the customer the moreprofitability you're going to make."...===It seems all bits of storage are not created equal. With theexpansion coming from the enterprise sector and Seagatepredominantly in retail, is it really clear they can keep makingthe proportional share of profits from the switch?I will have to look this up, but my impression was that Seagate already sold most of its hardware to the 'integrator', not directly to the customer. Apart from a few replacement hard drives or external drives, don't they already sell most of their drives to Dell and HPQ and the others? Maybe there's a sticker on the computer somewhere, that says who made the hard drive, but I doubt that Dell is paying extra to Seagate to get that Seagate name on the sticker.dtm
