    What have people been paying for 16 GB? I'm in the market to u grade my recently acquired refurbished mini but I'm in no great hurry or need and never liked paying peak prices so.... Speculation is welcome.

    Edit: I did some research and it looks like I'll be waiting. I found a neat price tracking tool (no I'm not affiliated with the web site). Low of $74.99 this year. I'll wait as it looks like we may be at the backside of a peak.

    Wow....I haven't had to track memory prices lately and didn't realize the jump. Just looked up my Newegg order for the 16GB kit (ordered Nov 2012) I put in my 2012 Mini. It cost me $63 no tax and free shipping.

    I believe the term for it is "Quantitative Easing...."

    I disagree. The correct phrase is "Bend over and cough."

    Agreed. The US dollar doesn't stretch as far as it used to. :(
