Mobility scheme

The axe fell today on Intel's mobile Pentium III prices, establishing clear blue water between the top of the line parts, and the new P4-Ms.

The 1.2GHz part falls 21 per cent down the price ladder from $508 to $401. The 1.13GHz PII-M tumbles 27 per cent from $401 to $294; the 1.06GHz model falls 18 per cent from $294 to $241; and the 1GHz also drop 18 per cent from $241 to $198. All parts are supplied with 512k cache and are manufactured using the 0.13micron process.

Prices for the P4-Ms remain unchanged, with the 1.7GHz part knocked out at $508 and the 1.6GHz part selling for $401. As usual, all prices quoted are for trade - you have to buy a 1,000 at a time. ®
