As reported before, Intel had hinted a price drop in Q3, expecting a second price drop someday in August and September. However, the exact date turns out surprisingly on July 22 as the first hand information we have received.

Heard of this a couple days back, I'm hoping the cause of this will be because of the release of Penryn.

Intel will rename Penryn (the chip) in due course, but that could come too late for Penryn (the town). Pickup continued: "Even if they announce a new name, it will take up to a year for it to come off the placements. Businesses need to look at their keywords and maybe change a few things."

Intel has moved quickly to assure Penrynians that they will not be forced to shut up shop and move to a more Google-prominent location. The UK's Intel marketing manager Chris Hogg offered: "It's just a codename that we're using - we have no plans whatsoever to use it as a brand.

lol people will complain just about anything. It's a code name for a chip, it'll disappear as quick as it appeared, the more they complain about it the more it'll appear on the web and cause whatever problems they are having right now to grow. Once the chip is released the code name will slowly die, kinda like conroe did with Core2duo.
