Retravision has become the latest national retail chain to take on NEC's branded range of desktops and notebooks.
Harvey Norman and Domayne are the only other outlets NEC consumer model can be purchased from, according to the vendor's general manager of sales and marketing, Tim Falinski.
"We also have a commercial range of PCs and servers that are sold through our diamond dealers and distributors like Dicker Data," he said.
Falinski said Retravision had been a white and brown goods partner of NEC for more than 30 years and had also sold its former Packard Bell line of PCs about five years ago.
NEC's consumer desktops predominantly run Windows Media Center Edition, Falinski said, while its consumer notebooks run Windows XP Professional. A Media Center-enabled notebook was on the cards for late in the year.
Falinski said the addition of Retravision wasn't necessarily the final retail deal for its consumer PCs. It reviews its retail strategy every six months.
"We have no direct or Web-based sales so the channel is very important to us," he said. "But we are also very aware of the impact of adding more partners to the channel business.
"If we believe a new partner can add value, we will explore it in full consultation with our existing partners."
