Dell Computer has reduced prices up to 17 percent across its OptiPlex desktop PC line.
As an example, the OptiPlex GX1p has been reduced 11.8 percent, from $2,198 to $1,938. It includes a 500MHz Pentium III processor, 128MB of ECC 100MHz SDRAM, 10GB EIDE HD, a 17X/40X CD-ROM, 8MB of integrated video SGRAM, integrated 3Com 10/100 networking, factory-installed Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, and a 17″ monitor.
The OptiPlex GX1, with a 400MHz Pentium II, has been reduced 17 percent, from $1,343 to $1,117.
An OptiPlex G1, based on a 400MHz Celeron, has been reduced 13.9 percent, from $927 to $798.
Dell said the price cuts result from declining component cost and direct model efficiencies gained through increased Internet sales and online technical support delivery.
