Dell Reduces Server Prices by Up to 47 Percent

ROUND ROCK, Texas, Sep 27, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Dell(tm)
(Nasdaq:DELL) today
announced that it has completed U.S. price reductions of 14 percent to
47
percent across its entire line of award-winning PowerEdge(tm) servers,
continuing to set the industry benchmark for combined price,
performance and
value, and increasing the pressure on its competitors in the server
market.

Customers can now purchase a PowerEdge server from Dell, the world's
leading
direct computer systems company and the world's second-largest provider
in the
Intel architecture-based server market(a), for as little as $1,182.

Dell's most dramatic price reduction appears in the enterprise-level
server
segment with fully configured, four-processor PowerEdge 6400 and
PowerEdge 6450
servers receiving price reductions of 47 percent and 43 percent
respectively. At
the high-end, customers can now purchase robust PowerEdge 8450
enterprise
servers for as little as $13,955.

"Dell's direct model and incredibly efficient supply chain, which
measures
inventory in minutes, not weeks, days or even hours, enables us to very
quickly
pass component savings along to our customers," said Kevin Soelberg,
Dell vice
president for public sector and Americas enterprise marketing.

"Our customers understand that they don't need to overpay for
industry-leading
performance, the latest, most relevant technology, and superior levels
of
customer service. Dell has a long history of delivering it all at a
great
price."
