    i think they will probably keep the prices roughly the same. It all depends on what kind of specs they try an achieve. They will probably boost the hard drives up a little. I highly doubt 8 gb of ram will ever be standard in the foreseeable future. The same goes for solid state drives. There is already supposedly a shortage of the NAND memory, and the ipad isn't helping that.

    Personally, the coolest thing ever would be to have 8 gb or more of memory built onto the logic board, for the operating system and apps (if room), and then a sweet 500gb 7200 rpm storage drive.

    You have a long thread with a lot of variables.

    As a rule, slight specs bumps don't see much - if any - price bump. A major chip change will be deployed in higher end models and come with a price increase. Use the iMac and their somewhat recent upgrade to i5 and i7 as a model.
