Tesco to boost cut price computer offering


Not content with dominating the grocery sector, Tesco is set to flex its muscles in the IT market by boosting its range of cut-price PCs next month, with stores featuring a permanent computing section in stores for the first time.

Tesco’s entry-level notebooks will be under £400 for an Acer Travelmate, rising to £800 for something like the Samsung X11. They’ll also challenge Dell with desktops under £300 and the wider PC market with dual core machines for £600.

One of the reasons why it can offer the cheaper desktops is by removing monitors from the deal, acknowledging that many people want to upgrade their computer, but are perfectly happy with their existing monitor. The range will initially hit 50 Tesco Extra outlets from mid-June, where customers will be able to test out the models instore.
