Re: what exactly is happening on the 22nd of july?
On July 22, there will be a launch of 4 new Core 2 Duo processors, to add to the Conroe line. And in addition, the price cuts of the current C2D processors. I think these price cuts, are geared mostly towards the desktop processors. I haven't heard anything on the laptop chips. It is for single CPU chips, and it will affect prebuilt systems too, I'm guessing. Don't know the percentage drop, but it's significant. For example the quad core Q6600 is dropping down from $530 to about $270.
