HP sells out of P4 systems

But won't say how many that was

Sounds cool. Hewlett-Packard has sold out of P4 systems within a couple of days of launch. Rather unhelpfully, the Great Satan of Printers, Calculators and Oscilloscopes can't give absolute numbers.

So we won't know for a while if there was a genuine mad rush to buy P4 boxes, or if HP only bothered to build a dozen systems on spec.

An HP spokesperson told The Reg: "Our Web store sold out [of P4 systems] within one day. There was a limited number of systems and as expected, these buyers were all early adopters. We expect sales to ramp up starting in January and continue to grow throughout the whole year as prices fall and performance increases." ®
