"The smaller die size allows the new Celeron 1020M to run at 2.1GHz whilst maintaining the same 35W TDP."
I never said anything about the Ivy Bridge Celeron, was talking about the Haswell Celeron :lol: with no TDP listed yet(hence I used "going to be"). Maybe you should read the title and get off Mt Pious and your High Horse?

Haswell will likely have roughly the same TDP. The biggest improvement it brings to mobile is 10X lower IDLE power.

Probably never because low-end CPUs are becoming powerful enough to handle most everyday computing tasks so people who need little more than browsing the net, watch stuff on Youtube/Netflix, etc. have little use for more than that.
When my mother went shopping for a light-use laptop, I made her buy one based on an AMD E-350 since even that is still overkill for everything I expect her to ever do with it. She's quite happy she didn't spend the extra $200 for the 'better' laptop she now knows she didn't need.
Different people and uses have different requirements. In some cases, those can be very low.
