HP chops prices of Intel servers

Hewlett-Packard has lowered the price of its Intel-based servers by as much as 31 percent, the company said Tuesday. Prices for its rack-mounted 1.75-inch-thick LP1000r and 3.5-inch-thick LP2000r have been cut 11 percent to 31 percent, while prices for some special-purpose server "appliances" were cut 14 percent to 29 percent. The cuts were made possible by declining component costs and improvements to HP's manufacturing process, the company said. However, HP's Intel server business is suffering; HP lagged IBM, Dell Computer and top-ranked Compaq Computer in U.S. sales, according to Gartner Dataquest. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
