IBM touts price-per-seat PC

For big companies only

IBM Global Financing has launched Price-per-Seat, an all-in-one bundle of hardware, software and services, wrapped into a per PC price. Price-per-Seat is aimed at companies with more than 500 PCs - and the kit doesn't have to come from IBM.

Price per unit contracts are essentially an updated type of lease finance (traditionally they were available for hardware only). They are currently deployed by one in ten European middle and large businesses, and is expected to be used by one in three, according to a survey conducted by Ronin Corporation. ®
