Now that the WWDC has come and gone and Apple didn’t introduce the long-rumored light notebook, I was looking at Macbooks today, thinking about ordering a new laptop. Figuring that the laptop will probably be my main machine for the next while, I was looking at the Macbook Pros. I was thinking it would be good to trick one out with the full 4 GB memory config, but I was totally blown away by what Apple charges for the upgrade from 2 GB to 4 GB. $750 for 2 GB of memory? Are you kidding, I thought?
But it’s not just Apple – Lenovo is charging $845 for the same upgrade on its Thinkpad T60 series. There must be something I don’t know about DDR2 memory that causes the prices to be so high.
