Dell is slashing prices on corporate IT solutions by up to 22%, but only for US customers.

Dell is slashing prices on corporate IT solutions by up to 22%, but only for US customers.

The cuts come on the back of impressive trading figures and lower component costs for Dell, and cover enterprise servers, desktops and laptops.

Dell said the cuts demonstrated the advantage of its direct business model, enabling it to pass on component cost savings quickly. However, it stressed the savings were only for US customers.

Savings of as much as 22% are available on the Dell PowerEdge 4600 dual-processor server. With two 2.4GHz Intel Pentium 4 processors and four 73Gbyte hard drives, prices now start at $4,194 (£2,450).

Dell Precision workstation pricing has been reduced by up to $460, and Dell has slashed $100 off select OptiPlex desktop configurations. For mobile workers, Dell has lowered the price on several Latitude notebook configurations up to $220 and a memory upgrade to 512Mbytes is now available for $109.

"Our business model and direct relationship with customers allow us to pass these savings on quickly," said Ro Parra, senior vice-president and general manager for Dell Americas.
