    they're always talking about price drops, but they seem to trickle in very slowly.

    as someone who is very disappointed with my t5600 1.86ghz core2duo boxes, in comparison to my p4ht 3ghz box, a 3ghz core2quad looks like a decent upgrade path at last - previously the decent clock rates have only been dual core.

    mind you, might as well wait for nehalem and 6-8 cores and new architecture....

    The Intel price drops always affect me immediately, but it depends on the store you frequent. Those prices are based on orders of
    1000 per cpu (not all stores order that much), and then it's up to the store as to whether they drop the price on existing stock that was on hand before the price drop.

    I am a licensed Intel dealer and I can purchase CPU's from Newegg, as well as a few other online outlets, cheaper than Intel dealer prices. :D
