ASUS reportedly plans to increase their UK Pricing by 9%

 

Right now several manufacturers have already increased their UK pricing including Dell and HP, two of the world's largest PC builders. These price increases have come thanks to recent fluctuations in the value of the Pound (£), the UK's currency, after their recent vote to leave the EU. 

Now it has been reported that ASUS plans to increase their UK Pricing by 9-10% in October in order to compensate for currency fluctuations Post-Brexit, dramatically increasing the process of Asustek notebook and other PC systems.  

At this time this has not been confirmed by ASUS, but if this is true it will mean that the UK's PC builders/gamers may need to pay significantly more for their systems.

Right now the instability of the pound has already caused an increase in the price of most imports, though right now it is unclear how long this economic instability will last.

During times like this the problem is created when people stop buying, not continue it. The last time the UK was in recession was around 2009 and it was because loads of stores were closing down due to people closing their wallets.

Things were very cheap then for a while. I guess it was to encourage people to spend. Upping the price will definitely not help in a situation like this. People are worried, so they are hanging onto their cash. You need to tempt them, not chase them away with a stick covered in dog poo.

I won't go into all of the details about how and why but within a couple of years we could see pretty much every one dropping out of the mobo market apart from Gigabyte and Asus. As I said, boring details and information from a mate of mine in Taiwan but he's usually right. The only thing he's got ever so slightly wrong was that the 1060 wouldn't be in stock anywhere for ages. However, he could still be on the money as we could have just seen a few "token" 1060s before the wait begins like it did with the 1070 and 1080. You can also expect the prices to rise. It's a clever strategy.

Any way, doesn't bother me none I just simply won't buy anything if they are taking the urine.Quote
