Intel takes axe to P4, Celeron prices

Desktop and mobile

Intel yesterday cut not only its desktop Pentium 4 prices yesterday, but trimmed what it charges for the mobile version.

Desktop prices fell by up to 35 per cent as anticipated. Mobile Pentium 4 prices were reduced by similar amounts.

The chip giant also tweaked mid-range Celeron prices - and those of top-of-the-line Mobile Celerons, too - but by a lower margin: no more than 16 per cent.
