Surprise, surprise!

Intel reduce prices where AMD are competitive.

Prices were really high for a while due to the poor pound. The processor I bought a year a go had actually gone up in price by about £30. Oddly, AMD's prices had not gone up or maybe I just wasn't watching them as closely.

Anyway, I can't see myself buying another Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad, I'm saving up the extra dough for an i7 which requires a new motherboard etc.
