I like lower prices... but after reading that, this comment does bother me:
"We think these price cuts are worse for AMD as these cuts likely mute the Barcelona launch . . . likely ensuring that Intel maintains recent share gains," wrote analyst Chris Caso, who has a buy rating on Intel shares. At the same time, Intel's price cuts will delay any further improvement to the chip giant's gross profit margin, which has suffered due to increased competition from AMD.
Well... a company has to do what it has ta, I guess.
