As great of a company Intel is, they have to stop trying to put AMD out of business. First the thing with Global Foundries and the X86 patents, then they sue NVIDIA for X58 infringement, now this.

I'm really sick of how expensive their products are. even this "price drop" still puts too large a profit in their hands if you ask me.

just remember it takes money to make these processors! Intel is spending $7 billion on new fabs in the coming years and had at one point over 100,000 employees around the world... The amount Intel spends on R&D and to keep the best engineers on payroll is huge... If they don't make a profit they wouldn't be able to do what they do!

Notice Intel doesn't need bailout money and is one of the largest corporations in America... More power to Intel for having done things right and learning that you have to have a profit margin from day one.

I agree with Apop. Seriously though I have no problem paying $250 for a processor, and you can get a pretty nice one from Intel in that price range. Unless you want the latest and greatest pricing right now to build your own computer is crazy cheap for what you are getting. Compaired to a 1 1/2 years ago.
