First, tray prices on the Intel Ark mean nothing - you can't buy these as bare chips anyway, so who knows what system integrators actually pay. Second, with mobile chips you really have to take TDP rating into account for pricing as well. 15W and lower chips often are as expensive or more expensive than 'better' 35W chips because they take more binning and validation to work at lower voltages.

i3s and i5s have the same exact TDP. Did you even check his links?

"U" processor costs more than a "M" processor. You pay more for a processor that uses fewer watts. You are paying for the extra battery life.

37W 37W 15W 15W 15W 15W 11.5W 11.5W 28W 28W 28W

Very similar numbers

That said the 4200u is quite out of place

Their pricing is all about the # of cores, speed of those cores, and the watts used by those cores at those speeds. Watts don't matter on a desktop CPU when it comes to pricing. On a mobile CPU, pricing is all about performance per watt.
