How do Intel make money on Celeron's?

This isn't a problem, just a curious question.

How do Intel make money on their Celeron chips?

If they're basically Core 2 chips with some of the features disabled, surely they lose money for selling them at such a low cost? And if the old Celeron's were based on Pentium's, had all the features of Pentium's, yet just had some disabled... I really can't see how that's good for business.

This question's always baffled me.

If you put this into Speakers' Corner, you will probably get more response!

But close this thread, with the Green-tick too!
