Hardware, software, and maintenance pricing:
Did you know that there are computer hardware, software
and maintenance prices on the TPC web site? These pricing
figures appear both in the Executive Summary and in the
Full Disclosure Report of each individual result (1).
These reports list vendor part numbers, prices, and discounts
available to the general public. These prices can be used
as part of your negotiations with the hardware or software
supplier during the purchasing process.
If you find that a supplier is not honoring the figures
shown in the reports please contact the TPC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(1) To find an Executive Summary or a Full Disclosure

in the summary table. This will lead you to a Result Highlight
page where you will find links to the Executive Summary
and Full Disclosure Report at the bottom.
The Public Relations Committee also responded to press articles
