We see two welcome surprises from Intel this week. First we have the new 1.7GHz Pentium 4, which debuts at $384. As you can see from our review, the performance of this P4 may finally justify its cost. Secondly, we see a much needed price cut in the Pentium 4 segment. The 1.5GHz part dropped $174, putting it at an affordable $266. The 1.4GHz and 1.3GHz parts also fell significantly in price this week. Each can be found for $206 and $193, respectively.

Although the Pentium 4 line saw some action this week, the Pentium III processors remained relatively steady in terms of price. The largest price drop came from the 933MHz part which fell $15. Those looking to build a high performing system on a budget should look into the 750MHz and 733MHz parts which can be purchased for $105 and $101, respectively. This confirms Intel's agenda to replace the Pentium III with the Pentium 4 by the year's end. It is by far the quickest processor ramp we have seen to date.

As for the Celeron line of processors, we see only minor price fluctuations this week. Our only favorite of the line, the 800MHz part, can you be found for under $90. We recommend this model because its 100MHz (FSB) alleviates some of the bandwidth limitations seen on older 66MHz FSB Celerons.
