Hard disk factory floods cause PC prices to rise by up to £60
Due to the low profit margins that PCs are sold with, these price increases cannot simply be absorbed and have to be added as a surcharge on existing models. We recently gave a Best Buy award to Chillblast's Fusion Shadow, which cost £450 inc VAT. The firm has added a surcharge of £60 for the increase in price of a 1TB hard disk, bringing the new total including VAT and delivery to £510.
