Sharp is following the recent trend in cutting notebook PC prices by reducing the costs of its multimedia laptops. The company has cut the prices of its 900 series notebooks by around £500. This is hot on the heels of prices cuts from NEC announced earlier today.
The new prices are £2,299 for the Sharp PC-9040 (previously £2,795) and £3,299 for the PC-9070 (previously £3,795). The latter uses the P133 processor and Sharp claims this now undercuts prices from Toshiba, Compaq and IBM.
Both Sharp systems feature CD-ROM drives and active matrix LCD displays.
