Intel cut prices on its Pentium M processors and on its Centrino bundle, which includes a Pentium M processor, a chipset and a Wi-Fi module. More than half of all notebooks based on a Pentium M chip contain the full Centrino package. The cost of the high-end Pentium M 755, which runs at 2GHz and contains 2MB of cache, dropped almost 34 percent, from $ 637 to $ 423. The Pentium M 745, which runs at 1.8GHz, was sliced from $ 423 to $ 294. Centrino bundles based around the 755 chip were knocked down 30 percent, with the top price falling from $ 706 to $ 695 and the bottom price from $ 495 to $ 481.
