Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Our friends over at the NECX, a firm which specialises in watching how computer and component prices fall, is reporting that Compaq is cutting prices by nearly eleven per cent on a number of its models. The models concerned are the Deskpro EP and EN models, And IBM has cut prices on its IntelliStation Z Pro systems by an average likely to be around six per cent, when they translate into Europe. In other news from NECX, notebook prices are set to rise, because of shortage of yields on LCD parts. This may well have been prompted by the news we broke last week that Hyundai intends to spin off its LCD division to Taiwan, coupled with a Philips-LG deal. This morning, national newspaper the Guardian was reporting that at its motor show, held towards the end of last week, there were only three significant players mentioned. The same is also true of LCD and memory components, as reported here earlier. ®
