    Anyone know how much these are costing now that we have Core 2 out? I know there was supposed to be a significant price cut some time after Intel released core 2.

    Apple is basically fleecing us off since May for the Minis, but oh well, I decided to just stuff it and order one:rolleyes:

    Current prices for Yonah are still;

    Core Duo
    T2700 (2.33Ghz) $637
    T2600 (2.16Ghz) $423
    T2500 (2.00Ghz) $294
    T2400 (1.83Ghz) $241
    T2300 (1.66Ghz) $241
    T2300E (1.66Ghz) $209

    Core Solo
    T1400 (1.83Ghz) $209
    T1300 (1.66Ghz) $209

    Rumoured prices for Merom (as no official pricing from Intel yet);

    Core 2 Duo
    T7600 (2.33Ghz, 4MB cache) $637
    T7400 (2.16Ghz, 4MB cache) $423
    T7200 (2.00Ghz, 4MB cache) $294
    T5600 (1.83Ghz, 2MB cache) $241
    T5500 (1.66Ghz, 2MB cache) $209

    Current prices for Conroe;

    Core 2 Duo
    X6800 (2.93Ghz, 4MB cache) $999
    E6700 (2.66Ghz, 4MB cache) $530
    E6600 (2.40Ghz, 4MB cache) $316
    E6400 (2.13Ghz, 2MB cache) $214
    E6300 (1.83Ghz, 2MB cache) $183

    Current prices for Woodcrest;

    Core 2 Duo
    5160 (3.00Ghz, 4MB cache) $851
    5150 (2.66Ghz, 4MB cache) $651
    5140 (2.33Ghz, 4MB cache) $455
    5130 (2.00Ghz, 4MB cache) $316
    5120 (1.83Ghz, 4MB cache) $256
    5110 (1.66Ghz, 4MB cache) $209

    In other words, there are no reason not to opt for Merom unless you factor in two things: 1) if you are Apple you probably get the current Yonah at a reduced price (think Mac Mini) and 2) availability.

    Lower Thermal Design Power?

    But generally speaking, I would say no.

    But prices are soon to be updated (next Intel price slashing is happening in October).

    Anyway, I left out all the Low-Power and Ultra Low-Power processors as no Apple products uses them.

    So Core Duo and Core 2 are still the same price. If this rumoured price drop occurs next month, Apple will need to cut prices on Core Duo hardware. (Mini and MacBook)
