Intel to cut Mobile Celeron prices this weekend
All part of the plan
Intel is expected to start charging less for certain Mobile Celeron processors on Monday.
As we wrote last month, this coming Sunday, 17 June, will see Intel slice the price of its 800MHz Mobile Celeron from its launch price of $170 to $107, a cut of 37 per cent. The part was introduced on 27 May - just three weeks ago.
We also expect the prices of the 750MHz and 700MHz Mobile Celerons to fall too.
Later this month, Intel will cut the price of the 1GHz Mobile Pentium III to $401 from $637. This cut paves the way for the introduction of faster, 0.13 micron Mobile PIIIs (aka Tualatin) next month. 1.13GHz and 1.06GHz Mobile Tualatin PIIIs will ship at $637 and $508, respectively. ®
