    I don;t need it, I am just making a general statement on the price of RAM - up about 60 dollars a gig in a month.

    Crucial - have had much bad luck from the "other suppliers."

    No, the problem is that most of the fabs are switching to cranking out DDR-2 chips, so there is no longer a glut of cheap DDR components on the market. DDR PC2100 is going up the fastest, as assemblers abandon making them, PC3200 is following upwards, this is most evident in 1 Gb DIMMs.

    So are you telling me to buy now, it's only going up?

    I like to have spares.

    Sounds to me like it's already too late.

    There will be weekly (daily) fluctuations up and down, but the general trend is up for DDR DIMM products, to be followed later by DDR SODIMMs, unless some factory decides there is enough demand still and tries to capture the market with extra production.

    SODIMMs use a different chip design from most DIMMs, and most laptop manufacturers have not switched to DDR-2 yet, so the effect on Powerbook RAM will be delayed.
