A Minor Tweak in Power 520 Pricing
October 27, 2008 Timothy Prickett Morgan
Last week, IBM continued to tweak its product pricing for the Power Systems i and System i product line.
The price of the base 9407-M15 (that’s the original Power Systems Power 520 i Edition) and the 8203-E4A (that’s the converged i-AIX-Linux box announced on October 7 that has twice the Power6 cores) was dropped by $299. Then the price for the feature 7112 and 7113 deskside covers for these two boxes was raised from $300 to $599, and the price for the rack-mount drawer rail kit for these two machines was upped from $150 to $300.
This could be the shortest story I have ever written. It had to happen sooner or later.
