Osborne effect on Intel

Newegg.com is a very popular site for computer parts, fast delivery, fair prices. The best part of the site is user comments. Look at this Pentium D 820 2.8GHZ dual core, the list price is only $174.99. Cheap. But, not many people are buying it, only 100 comments. The last comment was left on May 14, 2006, nine days ago. The message was "Cons: ummm wish it was a Conroe?? ;)"

The Athlon X2 3800+ is selling at $297. Three comments were added today.

The top three CPU sellers at newegg.com are:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Processor - Retail $135.00
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - Retail $297.00
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Processor - Retail $106.00
