British Pound drop against dollar

Dell increases prizes due to Brexit

Consumers in the United Kingdom are seeing a hike in the prizes in the technology sector. This as aftermath of the Brexit vote probably because of the uncertainty of what the vote real means for Britain and its impact on the rest of the world. The vote in the UK last week to leave the European Union has led to the fluctuations in the market and the GBP melt down.  The Great British Pound has now reached a 31 year low.

Dell informed its partners of the prize hike which would in turn be communicated to its customers. It seems the general view was one of acceptance from the consumers understanding the situation.

Dell has confirmed that they  have increased prices by about 10% for most of their products from laptops to servers.Dell spokesperson has told The Register,

“We carefully consider price moves for our customers and partners, and have worked diligently over the past several months to postpone any increases pending the outcome of the EU referendum

Our component costs are priced in US dollars and unfortunately, the recent strengthening of the US dollar versus sterling and other currencies in the EMEA region, following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, will have a direct impact on the price we sell to our UK customers and partners”

Even though Dell increases prizes it is not the only one increasing prices in the UK. Its rumored  HP might also be going for the same resolve and probably a lot of other tech companies as the Pound continues to drop.

Buying computers and other gadgets

In as much as 10 percent increase on a £40 Kindle Fire HD wouldn’t be much but when buying high priced gadgets you will definitely feel the pinch. Still there is something you can do to get your devices at cheaper prices. At times we buy things because of advertisements but if you are cash conservative your focus should mainly be on functionality. So before buying think of what you need. You can get great deals from this link on Amazon.
