Computer suppliers have been calling us over the past few days. They are telling us that barring a miracle, as the Australian dollar is currently sitting at its lowest levels in almost 20 years and still going south, that they cannot honour their current pricelists and new ones will soon be issued. I expect that the new computer hardware price will probably be at a 3-5% increase. We have stock in hand enough to last us till late March but after that our prices and everyone else prices will be going up.
The only good news now is that the Australian government stimulus package could help support the economy and the dollar.
Anyway if you have now any plans to upgrade your computer system soon, now is the time to do it.
