Troubled Dell in PC price hike shocker

Set your wallet to stunned

Pity if you will poor old Dell: its Q2 financials had shareholders sobbing uncontrollably over their Dimensions as management declared that the company's woes "primarily reflect aggressive pricing in a slowing commercial market worldwide".

We can confirm, though, that Dell's disaster recovery plan does not include cutting margins to compete with other manufacturers' aggression. Quite the opposite, in fact:

Dells ups its prices somewhat

Good Lord. In case you were wondering, for that price you can get around 43,450 2GHz Intel Core Duo iMacs with 20in LCD screens and still have enough change for a hearty lunch. We await Dell's Q3 results with interest. ®


Thanks to Nick Bridgland for spying Dell's new pricing regime.
