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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
