Web site promises "Razor Prices"

In an initiative born out of need - like most inventions are - a 19-year-old information technology student has developed a Web site which brings together the latest and best prices for computer components sold on the Net.

David Rugendyke, a second-year student at Southern Cross University, Lismore, saw the need for a comprehensive hardware search engine when he was looking to upgrade his own PC.

Nine months in the making and he has launched Razor Prices (http://www.razorprices.wcq.com.au) -- a search engine running on an Excel database and featuring the major PC components at the latest prices.

Currently 10 Australian online retailers are participating in Razor Prices, but Rugendyke says he has had an influx of inquiries since PC World's sister publication Australian Reseller News published a story about the site.

Rugendyke is now sorting through the inquiries, trying to achieve a balance between retailers in each state.

Retailer participation in Razor Prices is free of charge, says Rugendyke: "As long as they can get a price list to us whenever they update, they can participate."

"The site is a non-profit at the moment and I hope it can stay that way," he added.

Currently a one-man-show, Rugendyke is looking for sponsorship to cover costs, he says he may in the future need to hire staff if the site continues to grow.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
