Compaq is set to slash UK prices on its Armada notebook series next Monday after its US parent took the initiative yesterday.
A representative for Compaq UK confirmed the cuts today will but refused to disclose the amounts.
But Compaq?s biggest UK dealer said it was unaware of any price cuts today.
A salesman at Portable Computing said the RRP for an Armada 7330T with 12.1-inch TFT screen, SVGA screen, 21.1Gbytes drive and 16MBytes of memory would cost #2,699.
He said that prices will remain unchanged, thus prompting questions about Compaq?s policy on Armadas.
But US reports said there would be a wide range of cuts on Armadas, following reductions by IBM and Toshiba over the last three weeks.
One report said Armada prices in the US were reduced by 24 per cent on the 7330T, five per cent on the 7330MT and by 20 per cent on the 7770DMT.
The price on the Armada 7330T, until Compaq made the changes in the US yesterday, was $2,4999 for a similar configuration to the price quoted from Portable.
