Intel rolls out three P4-Ms

30 laptop models

And three more mobile P4 processors are rolling out of the Intel fabs.

Nothing really new, except for the speeds: there are now 1.8GHz, 1.5GHz and 1.4GHz parts fleshing out the P4-M line up. They join their 1.6GHz and 1.5GHz sisters.

So Intel is making big play about the customers, announcing that there are more than 30 new laptops will launch using the new processors. Round up the usual suspects - Dell, HP, MicronPC, Acer America etc. etc. and you will find a notebook using the new P4-Ms.

And prices? Buy a thousand and you are quoted the following: $637, $268, and $198 for 1.8, 1.5 and 1.4GHz, respectively.

Intel cut its PIII-M prices this week, which will help fuel budget consumer notebook sales, the one bright PC sector right now. ®
