Isn't it normal for prices to drop over time? Intel has released its Core i7 and
it's time for them to move on.

I just picked up a Core i7 PC and do have a couple of Core 2 Quads in the office
too. They work well.

I do wish AMD the best of luck though, as
competition is good for consumers.

Newegg has no idea of this new pricing.. Anyone willing to venture a guess when Newegg will change their prices to reflect the new decreased pricing?

They only did this to keep Al Gore from suing Intel. Of course Al Gore uses the Extreme Edition CPU's or probably a mac. That stinking hippy.

How many people will actually pay a $100 premium for going green?  Maybe the government can give us rebates on this?

In theory, a lower TDP can indicate both a cooler running processor and better overclocking headroom than a higher wattage counterpart. Depending on the consumer, those traits might be worth paying a premium for, though you have to balance what it would cost to step up to a faster processor in the first place.

Rebates? Yeah...I doubt it. Don't you want to do it instead for the warm fuzzies you get knowing you spent 100 extra dollars to help the rain forests and the starving children in Ethiopia?
