Don’t buy an Intel Inside PC

… at least until Monday

The Register Advisory Group (RAG) would like to remind readers not to buy a new Intel PC until after the weekend. As listed here, Chipzilla is chopping prices on Monday to make room at the top for the hot (literally) new P3 550 which will debut at $744. Other parts take a dive at the same time – the P3 500MHz drops from $637 to $482, the 450MHz is slashed from $411 to $268 as does the humble P2 of the same speed. The P2 400 drops to $193 from $234. Celerons are unaffected this time round but are scheduled to go down in the next planned price move on July 18. ®
