    For a MBP:
    512: $75
    1GB: $175
    2GB: $350

    For a MB:
    1GB: $150
    2GB: $350

    I didn't check any others, but I assume they have dropped as well. :D

    The MB RAM Prices were
    1GB: $200
    2GB: $600

    I forget what the MBP was, but it was similar.

    MB prices are the same, the 1 GB is 2x512MB. They are the same type of RAM so same price.

    I don't follow. My gf has been wanting to upgrade her MB to 1GB for a while now. The prices were $180 with a student discount, then it was $200 because they took the discount away, and now it's $150.

    They have dropped.

    Right they have. Sorry I wasn't clear. The price for MB and MBP RAM is the same. The 1GB for MB is less becasue it is 2x512, the same if you got 2x512 for the MBP.

    So now Apple's RAM prices are just gouging instead of highway robbery.

    Buy from OWC or DMS...great RAM from great companies. And cheaper.

    Yes, now people can really scream about the HIGH price for a couple sticks of memory ...

    "Those damn $6k memory upgrades from Apple, I can buy a car for that" :p

    All brands of iMac/MB/MBP RAM prices have dropped. The 1GB stick of G.SKILL RAM on Newegg is down to about $100 shipped now.
