    [REUTERS] Dell sues 5 Asia tech firms for LCD price fixing

    (Reuters) - Dell Inc, the world's third-largest PC maker, has filed a lawsuit against Sharp Corp, Hitachi Ltd, Toshiba Corp and two other companies for alleged price fixing of LCD displays.


    Dell filed the suit at a U.S. district court in San Francisco on Friday against the group of five firms, which also includes Japan's Seiko Epson and Taiwan's HannStar, a spokesman at Dell's Japan unit said on Monday.
    Dell has not decided the level of damages it will seek in the lawsuit, the spokesman said.
    Sharp and Hitachi said that they were aware of the suit filed by Dell but declined to comment further. Toshiba and Seiko Epson said they were still making checks on the issue, while no one at HannStar was immediately available for comment.

    People that buy OEM systems think Linux was a Charlie Brown character, a registry is something you see at target to buy shower gifts, RAM is a Dodge truck and a hard drive is DC at rush hour.

    I never did get the price fixing issue in a free market anyway. Hell the lowest priced 18.5' is a DELL and it sucks for inputs.
