    HP Prices Going Up "What A Suprise"!!!!!



    As you all may be aware HP have decided to increase there prices as of Monday 15th Of September,

    This move has been sprung on all resellers worldwide and other manufacturers are set to follow suit,

    With this in mind if your school is looking at HP branded Desktops,Laptops,printers or even OEM Consumables then be sure to contact us as soon as possible to avoid Monday's price increases,

    Regarding the consumables we have seen a massive increase of customer base converting partially/fully to high quality our fully guaranteed compatible inks/spares as these will not be rising in cost.

    If you would like a quotation for compatible alternatives be sure to contact us with your requirements.

    Don't think HP will take too kindly to their logo being vandalised?

    Whilst a price increase is not the best thing for us, as a school, I have been wondering for a while how HP (and all other tech companies) were managing to maintain such low prices when the rest of the world was suffering from price increases for everything.

    I have been expecting price increases for quite a while really.

    as dabs usually buy in HP equipment month to month its likely that they are holding the prices to make sales when the new stocks come in you will see a difference im sure,

    Or they're absorbing a bit of it temporarily to gain some business advantage. It's bound to go up

    I've not seen any news indicating a rise beyond that of the Server/Desktop line.

    News yesterday 15th Sept
    HP today became the first major systems vendor to react to the weakening pound by raising UK distribution prices for its PCs and servers.
    Article here..

    Not that I'm 'in the know' per say, just lack of anything else.

    To be honest, I don't think they will be counting their money and rubbing their hands together with glee

    Component prices have gone up across the board due to the huge change in the dollar. An example - we have a container of 1000 cases due in this week from the Far East. We ordered these 4 weeks ago but pay for them once they arrive. The price from when we ordered them until now has increased by around £6 per case

    Its the same with CPUs, software etc. PC builders simply cannot afford to absorb all of these costs, especially when they only make £25 - £30 on some PCs.

    a valid view Dan, the point i was making was more about the increase in turnover from this price rise wont be frowned upon by the HP bosses fella,
