Intel shaves a buck off certain Centrinos

Generous or what?

Intel only unveiled Centrino bundles based on its 90nm 'Dothan' Pentium M and its ProWireless 2000BG Wi-Fi add-in card last week, but it has cut those packages' prices already.

That said, the reduction isn't worth getting too enthusiastic about. It amounts to shaving a single US dollar off the previous price.

That comes to a reduction of up to 0.4 per cent. Generous or what?

However, it does mean that together Dothan, an i855-series chipset and the 2200BG is even cheaper than said processor and chipset with Intel's old ProWireless 2100 802.11 card.

Intel also cut the prices of Centrino bundles based on its older, 130nm Pentium M processor and the new 2200BG mini-PCI card. ®
