NEC raises PC prices (in Japan)

Folds to rising costs

Rising PC component prices and labour costs in China have prompted NEC to raise prices in its home country for the first time in six years. The computer giant aims to push through a three per cent rise to Japanese customers in September, Bloomberg reports. Fujitsu told the newswire that it had no plans to follow suit, while Toshiba hasn't made its mind up. No word from Dell, either.
