    I just saw that and thought "oh, that's expensive." Seems I'll stay with 8 GB for a while.

    I've been checking with OWC since they started selling 16GB for about $1300 (?) I think it was. Then it came down to $850 and I told myself if it ever dropped below $800, I'd give it a go, but it fluctuated between $830 and $880 for months on end. Last week I gave it another look and the price went down to $530 and I was ready to order, but I had to give NewEgg a look and lo-and-behold, it's selling for $300 shipped. So this one was the natural choice. This will work great for my media work!

    Funny, that was the first thing I thought when I saw this thread. They must be sleeping as I expected them already.

    Wow in a few more months it could be in the ~150 range. That's when I'd buy it :D

    yes it can.
    And benefits are better stable multitasking.
    I do alot of video/photo editing which I open photoshop, final cut, etc.
    These apps will eat ALOT of RAMs. So in my case, I need them.

    Honestly, using 16GB of RAM is depends on the user.
    Some people will use it, some dont.

    If you think you lag when you open multiple apps, get them.
    They are deff worth it
