Intel cuts mobile processor prices

Intel has once again slashed the prices of its chips, this time by up to 43 per cent off its mobile processors, to make way for the first Pentium III mobile and faster Celeron chips.

In late October, Intel will release its new mobile processors in conjunction with its new "Coppermine"-enhanced Pentium III desktop processors.

New mobile Celerons at 433MHz and 466MHz clock speeds will be released, along with Pentium III mobile processors, at speeds of at least 500MHz, says the company.

Mobile Celeron processors fared the largest price cuts, with 43 per cent slashed off the price of the 400MHz Celeron. The 366MHz Celeron fell by 41 per cent, the 333MHz model by 30 per cent, and the 300MHz version by 13 per cent.

Pentium II mobile processors were also given large price cuts, the 400MHz version cut by 32 per cent, the 366MHz model by 41 per cent, and the 333MHz Pentium II by 14 per cent.

Cheaper notebooks featuring these processors are expected as a result.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
