    Just had the following email from a vendor ....


    Because of weakening of pounds against dollar the prices of all items (hard ware) will see an increase of between 5-10% where the manf is based in the US ....

    Sassie, we are being advised by Vendors that most items will go up in prices (I work with IT industry remember) and just thought if someone is thinking of making a purchase here on HUKD it would probably save them some money if they do it before Monday :-D

    Not necessarily, Dell will be least affected by this ....

    I am NOT saying this WILL happen but this is the first time in the last four years that we have received an email to say that prices will be reviewed and possibly increased for some manf on Monday and the rest will follow within 10-15 working days

    Yeah, not quite sure which hardware is made in the US now. I know of a few enthusiast items that are made in Germany but other than that most stuff comes from where you said Maddogb. Any chance you can be a little more specific Dell?
