Intel shaved a few points off Celerons yesterday, paving the way for next week's widely touted launch of 1.7GHz and 1.8GHz Celerons, the first of the bargain basement CPU line to use a P4 core.

At the same time, Intel should be releasing the 845G chipset - at last. This combination of powerful, cheap chip and cheap-ish integrated graphics chipset should mean many more bangs per buck for workhorse PCs targeted at consumers.

The Celeron getting the price chop are the 1.3GHz down 12 per cent from $84 to $74, The 1.2GHz down 13 per cent from $79 to $69 and 1.1A GHz, down seven per cent from $69 to $64. ®
