The price of the Pentium 4 Processor-M running at 2.20GHz has been reduced to $348 from $562, the largest cut made. Prices on similar chips running at speeds ranging from 2GHz to 1.70GHz have also been cut.

Intel also reduced the prices of its Pentium III Mobile LV/ULV (low-voltage and ultra-low-voltage) processors and the mobile versions of its Celeron chip. The top-of-the-line 1GHz Pentium III Mobile LV is now priced at $241, down from $316. Intel's 1.80GHz Celeron has been cut to $134 from $149.

The new pricing brought the cost of Intel's notebook chips closer in line with its desktop products. A 2.20GHz Pentium 4 desktop chip is priced at $193. The prices are per chip for 1,000-unit quantities.
