The prices are in Pounds, not Euros. The price of the E6300 is close to $220USD from that website, I believe.

Euro prices are OFTEN more expensive than US prices. Besides, these are pre-order, likely to be more expensive than usual.

Wait the month and see how the US prices turn out. I can almost guarantee they will be lower.

Poor Brits.

brits get to pre order cause their not so lazy as their US counter parts and actually probably googled it. Meaning, theres probably a place in the US whos pre-ordering but everyone is to lazy or too worthless to find the place.

It's a marketing gimmick. Or at least I think it is. They sell the Core 2 Duos higher than normal, get the processors from Intel, and finally give it to the pre-orderers. Meanwhile, they are making bank from the people who pre-order.

The only problem is if Intel doens't get out that many Core 2 Duos to retailers. Hopefully that won't be the case.
