While prices on PCs and laptops drop, the price of servers is on the rise. Zdnet is reporting how while server shipments worldwide have stayed level, their value has increased.

 
The average server price has risen from 7,308 to $7,690 during the last quarter of 2006.  This indicates that clients want to pay more for their servers.
