Hewlett-Packard Co is very cross with DEC and has gone to interminable lengths to put its cross-country arch-rival right the problem is with the comparisons in DEC’s release on the VAX 4000 Model 300, which, it is claimed, contained many factual errors about the HP 3000 Series 922, Series 932 andSeries 949: Hewlett-Packard says that the DEC comparison chart gave an incorrect price for the Series 932, from which all the TPS calculations were made and in fact after the July 1 price cut, the Series 932 is cheaper; it also says that DEC got the number of users supported, the MIPS ratings, the maximum memory and the availability of dual host configurations wrong, and reckons that DEC’s promotion of a teleprocessing monitor – not needed on the HP 9000s, costs customers extra, eats up MIPS, and locks users into a proprietary system.
