    In May I ordered 16GB of memory for my ultimate iMac. I was very happy that I paid only $190. Then the memory was defective (first time in decades!), so I returned it, and placed a new order, in which the same Crucial DIMMs were $160. I was happier, though mostly because the memory wasn't causing horrible stability problems.

    Now those same Crucial DIMMs? $114.

    If you instead go with Corsair, it's $110. If you want to deal with rebates, $90.

    Since 4GB SO-DIMMs have bottomed out, this means we should start to see 8GB SO-DIMMs start to be produced in greater volumes in the next few months, and hopefully the prices of those come down from $100/GB, closer to $50-60/GB. They should hopefully be closer to $15/GB in 12 months.

    Ah

    NewEgg just had a deal on their F3-10600CL9S-4GBSQ (DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 4096MB x 1 with CL9-9-9-24) where if you bought them individually they took $7 off EACH CHIP so I got 16 gigs for a total of $102 which included shipping and rush charges. Best memory deal I've ever gotten and they work fine in my iMac ('09 i7 model) and run at 1333 mhz.
