Notebook vendors looking for delay of Intel’s Calpella platform

Atom based Netbooks are selling really well, but Centrino 2 notebooks are not, and as a result notebook manufacturer’s are asking for a delay in the Core i7 version of the notebook chip due this summer, so that they can sell off excess inventory in the mean time.  Centrino 2 stuff is also not being discounted by Intel as heavily, due to fears that it would cut into their Atom sales.  Oh what a wicked web we weave, when first we practice to fix prices.
