I’ve been distracted by Windows XP for the last week. Sweet stuff!

Watch for prices to take another sharp plunge this week. Intel is slashing processor prices today – more than 50% on the 1.8Ghz Pentium 4, and more huge cuts on the rest of the Pentium 4 line. There will also be amazing deals on Celeron and Pentium III-based systems as manufacturers and dealers try to avoid getting stuck with old inventory. Once Windows XP is available at the end of September, new systems should look awfully tempting.
