Intel gaat de prijzen van de mobile Celerons en PIII's omlaag gooien. Tevens zal er een nieuwe mobile Celeron op 433MHz ge´ntroduceerd worden. Hier heb je de details, uit een nieuwsbericht van News.com:
The discounts on Intel's notebook chips will be relatively steep. The 400-MHz Celeron processor, for instance, will drop approximately 43 percent, from $187 to $106 in volume, while the 400-MHz Pentium II will drop 32 percent, from $530 to $316 in volume quantities.
The first Pentium III notebook chips, which will run at 500 MHz, are expected in late October or early November, the company has said. When Pentium III notebooks begin to come out, Intel will begin to phase out the Pentium II line rapidly.
Most of the major PC makers, including IBM and Compaq Computer, are expected to release 433-MHz Celeron notebooks in the coming weeks. Although Celeron is often associated with consumer notebooks, sources indicated that the chip is making deeper inroads as a notebook business chip. Some of the 433-MHz Celeron system, for instance, are expected to cost around $2,000 and to be aimed at business users.
