HP cuts prices on Pentium Pro desktops

Hewlett-Packard has cut prices on its desktop PCs that use the Pentium Pro.

Hewlett-Packard has cut prices on its desktop PCs that use the Pentium Pro processor in an attempt to cement its leadership of the market by low-balling its competitors.

The HP Vectra XU PCs, ranging from 150 MHz to 200 MHz in speed, will take price cuts of between 5 percent and 10 percent, depending on the model. The price tag for the XU 6/180, for example, with a 180-MHz Pentium Pro processor, a 1GB hard disk drive (HDD), and 32MB of RAM, is being slashed 10 percent, from $4,963 to $4,479.

HP, already one of the leaders in the number of Pentium Pro desktops sold, cut the price for the XU 6/200 with a 200-MHz Pentium Pro, a 2GB hard disk drive, and 32MB of RAM will fall 9 percent from $5,626 to $5,142.
