MICROSOFT CAN OFFER SMALLER VOLUME DISCOUNTS

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft Corp says that under its anti-trust settlement, it can still offer volume discounts to manufacturers of personal computers but on a slightly smaller scale to those barred by the settlement: it will mean savings of $0.50 per unit, on a price difference of roughly 3% to 5% below alternative pricing deals that Microsoft is allowed to continue: Microsoft further maintains that the company will not experience any loss of business as a result of the deal, and that the heading off an antitrust by the European Union of the US Justice Department has saved the company millions of dollars in legal fees.
