Hah. Like I get a say in purchasing.

But if you get a 40% discount on this product and some much much larger customer gets a 61% discount like they mention then you can see that you would be annoyed that the graph shows them down there in the bottom right while you are higher along the Y axis .... Your price performance is significantly lower than theirs for the same product.

Like I said, bullshit graph.

I have a friend who has worked in EMC for a long time. I remember him saying one time that the only customer ever charged full list price for one of their mainframes was EMC. I'd imagine if some EMC buyer rang up HPE asking for prices of their fancy new all flash box they would not get much of a discount, more likely the reverse.
