To give the badly slumping PC market a much-need jolt, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is thinking about using one of the most effective tools in its arsenal: lowering chip prices. Intel chips can make up as much as 33% of a PC’s cost, according to supply chain analysis firm IHS. That means the chipmaker has the power to lower PC prices drastically. It might do just that.

And the question isn’t if Haswell will be in other Macs, but when.
