    Granted to buy 192GB from Apple will probably require a second mortgage, but interesting none the less.

    Well DDR3-1600 is running about $100 a GB, so even going third-party, you'll likely be able to buy a car for what 192GB will cost. :)

    Perhaps Apple would select a lower clock speed, say 1333MHz?
    The savings might make 6 mo. worth of auto insurance premiums for 192GB. :p
