ICT Direct maintain pricing despite UK experiencing 30% hike in computer costs

Since the EU referendum last June, the cost of computers has shot up by nearly 30%.

This can be attributed to a combination of a weakened pound against the dollar, component shortages for items such as memory and a shift to higher spec machines.

Many manufacturers such as Dell, HP and Lenovo increased their prices to UK distributors following the referendum, which resulted in a significant sales decline of computer equipment during July and August this year compared to the same period in 2016.

Despite these hefty price increases, ICT Direct have not only maintained their incredibly competitive pricing on refurbished PCs, workstations, printers and monitors, they’ve also retained the superb quality of their equipment. The only products that have seen an increase in price are solid state drives and new laptop batteries, everything else has remained the same.

John Graham, Head of Public Sector Sales at ICT Direct commented, “We’re so confident of the quality and reliability of our products that we provide a comprehensive two-year Advance Replacement Warranty as standard with all of our PCs, laptops, workstations, servers and monitors. Our equipment is of the highest standards and robust enough for the school environment.”

So, if your school is looking for high quality business grade computer equipment at fantastic prices, call 01254 820 980 or visit the ICT Direct website at www.ict-direct.co.uk

ICT Direct are members of BESA, Microsoft Authorised Refurbishers and Microsoft Education Resellers, and have been working with hundreds of schools across the UK for the past 10 years, saving them thousands of pounds on computer equipment.
