[tcMag] First Diamondville CPU coming at a low price

Making low-cost laptops is a price game in which the manufacturer has to pay as low as it can for every component and, at least when it comes to the CPU, most companies should have no problems with Intel's new Atom offer.

Manufactured using the 45nm process, the first Atom processor, codenamed Diamondville and clocked at 1.6 GHz, will have a price tag of only $29 (1000-unit tray quantities), a very attractive sum, especially given the chip's features (with the emphasis being on low power consumption). The CPU is set to be included in future Asus Eee PC models and other low-cost notebooks from the likes of MSI and like Acer, Gigabyte etc. For more processing power and a higher price, you'll have to wait until Q3 when single and dual-core parts set to 1.86 GHz

I'd like to see an atom in a cell phone. At only 29 bucks a pop (at 1000 at a time) this could be gravy!!!
