When Haswell silicon has reached production release status, all the Haswell product in the warehouse and shipped to customers already immediately went from $0 value to its carried value. Customers were billed and the revenue and profits started to flow.
IMO, there has been a "wait for Haswell" products behavior that has affected Intel Q1 "PC" sales.
IF YOU NEED a new machine and don't really need a Haswell, you can get some really great deals. You can buy the B950 Pentium (Sandybridge Core i3 w/o hyperthreading) for $275 with 4GB memory and 500GB+ drive. A nice, light duty, complete Windows machine for sub-$300.
