For the price watchers, experts with years of watching price, will Intel be dropping prices soon in response to the newly released AMD 6 core CPUs?

On a gut feeling, no. The Thubans are priced to compete well, but they're at current market value, not below it.

The i5 750 might drop a bit. The new 6 cores compete rather well with it. I get the feeling a bit more that Intel will keep the i5 750 where it is, and come out with a new one that has hyperthreading enabled. This will be a bit more then the normal 750.

Then again considering that the 750 is a better gaming CPU they might just leave it alone. The new 6 cores are better at everything else though.

I was thinking of this thread the other day. How have prices moved? I'd check myself but this laptop is so slow...

The Intel i5-750 has come down by about £10 recently to around £140 (from £150). Not bad.
