Have you noticed? The price of computers isn’t slowly falling as we have seen in the past, the prices are plummeting! Notebook computer prices have fallen 18.5% so far this year. The average notebook now sells for $963. These low notebook prices are forcing desktop prices down as well. Office Depot recently offered a 512MB RAM 100GB PC with a monitor and printer for $300!
It appears we are in the middle of a PC price war. Most indicators predict this will continue until the end of the year. So if your hardware is reaching late middle age (3 years old) There has never been a better time to buy.
