Now, for years there has been comments on the pricey nature of Apple's products. This time though, they have gone to far. Take a look at the price for the 2gb stick of DDR2-533 RAM.

Now look at this RAM that is the same thing. Same speed, same size, same ratings.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146513

Notice a difference? Apple's RAM is only 26X more expensive.

If you think that's just a fluke. How about a huge list of current prices for 2GB of DDR2-533 4200 RAM:

And, Apple fans wonder why PC users make fun of them.

Now, I'm not an idiot. I'm not an idealist. I understand that RAM is expensive. Especially two gigabytes of it. But twelve hundred dollars? I mean, if you were selling half a gigabyte for 100... then one gigabyte for 200... wouldn't it be logical to sell two gigabytes for 400? That RAM better have a genie in it or something.

Also, I'm also amazed at the other deal, two gigabytes for forty-five bux. I need to get me sommadat.

I'm not the most tech-savvy guy, but why couldn't you just buy 2 of the $200 sticks if you had to buy them there? Megaman
