CompQuestion 1: What price should Jowers charge DayTraderJournal.com for the ‘’Atlantic Bundle’’? There are four pricing strategies where Atlantic computer can choose from. These strategies are: status-quo pricing, competition-based pricing, cost-plus pricing and value-in-use pricing. Each strategy has a calculation and a price outcome. Below I will describe all strategies and all advantages and disadvantages of that particular strategy.

1. Status-quo pricing:
Status-quo pricing|
Price of Tronn server| $2.000|
Price of PESA| FREE| $0|
Total price of Tronn with PESA| $2.000|
Price of ''Atlantic bundle''| $4.000|

Competition-based pricing|
Price of Zink server (from Ontario Computer)| $1.700|
Price of 4 Zink servers (from Ontario Computer)| $6.800|
Price equalt to 2 Tronn servers (from Atlantic Computer)| $6.800| Price of Tronn server (from Atlantic Computer)|  |  |  | $3.400| Price of ''Atlantic bundle''| $6.800|
In the case of the competition pricing you will use the price of competitors to determine which sales price you are going to use. The price of the Zink server...
