Is the 2GB stick a typo or is one stick of RAM the same price as a new computer?
Well that's a single 2 GB stick, and those are pretty expensive. Especially now since RAM prices are on the rise.
Seems a bit high.
Apple has a 1x2GB for $750, assuming that I am looking at the correct item.
Seems expensive. I thought they ran closer to $600-$700?
They are generally around $1000 recently. The Crucial price is more than I would pay, but I wouldn't call it completely outrageous. 2GB chips are outrageous just in general. Apple's BTO prices are surprisingly good, definitely an option.
OWC has them for $729, while DMS charges $671. Cheaper RAM from better companies...still pricey though.
I alwyas buy my RAM from Datamem ... it is an excellent company ... I highly recommend them ...
Clear your cookies, that might cause the price to drop a little bit.
Crucial is notorious for determining pricing tiers based off of the user's browsing habits. Apparently they can determine how financially well off you are and price accordingly.
DDR2 RAM prices have been going up strongly over the past month at wholesale (I was looking at one Corsair module today -- the wholesale cost went from $107 to $172 in just six weeks).
You can expect to see prices varying, even daily, as companies jockey for price with the manufacturers, and competitively aginst each other.
Be suspicious of much lower than average prices, those will be companies who haven't updated their advertised pricing and your order will be rejected or you'll get the 'we have a small problem' phonecall when you try to get the 'deal'. To be safe, verify your price on the phone or by email the day you plan to order.
I second that...execellent company.
