Default surprise!

q6600, i have no idea what happened, but at 4 a.m. july 1st the price is 659 dollars

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Is this a bug? because i logged on fifteen minutes before and it was a hundred bucks cheaper which was still high. I'm confused.

Hmmm, if that means the price will actually drop to $266 on July 22nd and not like 3 weeks later, then that's awesome.
