crimeandpunishment writes: PC could soon stand for Price Cuts. A bad start to the back-to-school shopping season for the computer industry could translate into good deals for consumers, as computer makers scramble for ways to jump-start their sales. Last week both Hewlett-Packard and Dell raised red flags about what's usually a busy season....and Friday Intel lowered its forecast for the third quarter. Analysts say recent cuts in the price for some key computer parts gives PC makers the opportunity to drop prices and still maintain profit margins....one saying in a research note Friday "This component environment could potentially now allow companies to invest in more aggressive pricing to stimulate demand into next year".
