Comment What exactly is Moore's Law? (Score 1) 101

I've heard the term for years and thought I understood it. However, this thread seems to contain a lot of debate on exactly what Moore's Law means... I don't believe it actually has anything to do with cpu power doubling or transistor density. Can somebody clarify a precise definition?

Here is my interpretation...

If I buy a CPU today for X dollars in 18 months a CPU will exist that contains roughly twice the number of transistors that will also cost X dollars to purchase.
