As to why there won't be lower-priced processors for 2011 for the time being, Ivy Bridge will succeed Sandy Bridge next year and will once again bring higher end XE series processors to 2011 and high performance, mainstream and entry level products to 1155.
This makes me sad. I was hoping for something in the $300-$400 range for lga 2011. I won't be buying a $800 cpu.
