In response to typical summer trends and AMD's own price cuts from this very same week, Intel has done a nearly across the board price reduction for their Celeron D, Celeron M and Pentium M processors.

A desktop Celeron D LGA775 3.2ghz CPU is now wholesaling for $112. Here's a full price listing of all the reductions that took place yesterday.
