When Intel (NASDAQ:INTC)launches Cedar Trail, the latest version of the Atom-processor fabbed on 32nm process technology, we can expect to see the cost drop between 30% and 50% according to several netbook manufacturers in Taiwan that SemiAccurate has spoken with. The manufacturers prefer to remain anonymous since they are not officially allowed to discuss pricing on an unreleased product.

A little competition from AMD (and ARM) is always great, isn't it ?

From the history books, history repeats itself. From the MOS Technology 6502 article from Wikipedia:

Quote:
The 6502 was introduced at US$25 at the Wescon show in September 1975. The company had an off-floor suite with a big jar full of the chips. However with this early run they only had a handful of working ones. To give the appearance of larger quantities, the bottom of the jar was stuffed with defective chips, and only the ones at the top of the jar worked.[3] At the same show the 6800 and Intel 8080 were selling for US$179.[4] At first many people thought the new chip's price was a hoax or a mistake, but while the show was still ongoing both Motorola and Intel had dropped their chips to US$69.[5][6] These price reductions legitimized the 6502, which started selling by the hundreds.[3]
