    In the last week RAM prices for the intel iMacs have gone up about $20 on newegg.com. Does anyone know why, and will the prices drop down again?

    The store I buy most of my parts from has a notice on their website that there are currently shortages, and prices are fluctuating almost daily. They're guaranteeing their prices only on in-stock items.

    RAM prices are surging due to a shortage triggered by the impending (perhaps) release of RAM-hungry Vista. If you can hold out for a while, analysts think prices may come down a bit around Christmas time as supply and demand may balance out, but prices will be high for the short-term.
