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.
