When will 4GB DDR2 800MHz (PC2-6400) 200-PIN SODIMM modules be reasonably priced?
Posted on 2009-03-29
One of the principal reasons I decided to go with 64-bit Vista as the OS on a new laptop was because I could have up to 8GB of RAM. But I was surprised to see that although purchasing a total of 4GB of RAM (2 x 2GB) was very reasonably priced, it would cost me more than ten times the price of 4GB to upgrade my system to 8GB (2 x 4GB). I was told that the prices for the 4GB modules would come down within a month or two as production volumes increased, but this has not happened.
Does anyone have any insights what the likely pricing evolution is going to be for 4GB laptop memory modules? How long will I have to wait before the premium over 2GB modules becomes more reasonable?
