Toshiba has slashed prices on its desktop and notebook PCs, at the same time introducing an additional Libretto model.
The price cuts range between 21 per cent and 27 per cent on the desktops. The 5160D list price was #949 and has now fallen to #750.
The list price for its 6230D fell by 27 per cent, said Brian Green, product manager at distributor ICAS. Plus, said Green, there was a bundle with NT for the bigger product.
At the same time, Toshiba introduced a new Libretto and several ultra-slim models that challenge Compaq and IBM on their own turf.
IBM cut its portable prices in early December so is not going to revamp them gain in the near future, while Compaq refused to comment on any price cuts it might make in the first week or two of January.
