    They're on Crucial right now. Keep in mind we had the same wait for 4 GB DDR2 SODIMMs.

    So can someone verify for me, with an update to OSX (Snow Leopard?) will the new Macbook Pros be able to use 8GB of RAM?

    No, although the CPU is 64-bit, the chipset is still 32-bit on all MacBooks which means maximum amount is 4GB of RAM.
    However, for the desktops, they are 64-bit chipsets.

    When 4GB DDR2 sticks are <$100, the DDR3 chips should be affordable to the masses by then.

    Chipset support 36-bit PMA
