The rebate should make the low end spectrum, the Intel® Pentium® D hovering just above the $200 mark, converted to local currency and this should be around Php12,000 give or take a few hundred pesos (and tax, tax, and more tax). There's also a spreading rumor about an even lower end Intel® Pentium® D 805, which should make Dual Core processors reaching not just mainstream segment, but those within the "value for money" consumers. A sub $200 or Php10,000 dual core should be a killer processor for those looking for uber functionality while keeping the cost down to a minimum. So, if you're still holding on to your older powerhouse system, or planning to make a jump, try to hold your reigns for quite a bit and wait for the prices to come down in a month's time.
