    I have been watching the price of the 4GB DIMMs on the OWC site. In the past 2 weeks or so, I have seen the price fall over $120. Does anyone have any idea what a good price is for a 4GB DIMM? Seems like there must be a huge markup to have it dropping by $20 every 4 or 5 days. I would love to upgrade my new MBP to 8GB, just wondering when the price might stabilize a little bit.

    DDR3 is still coming into the mainstream (well, the high-end mainstream). It's still a bit of a luxury upgrade, although it will probably be considered standard on high-performance machines within 6-12 months. Honestly, between increased adoption and the economy, I'd bet DDR3 prices will continue to drop for quite awhile. It's a supply and demand thing.

    I am holding out for < $200. I don't mind waiting. Here's a prediction of when that might occur. If the prediction were accurate, then it looks like I might not be waiting long!
