Hmm... I never realized it was that absurdly high of a price. I would do

Hmm... Interesting.  That is insane.  so basically for 2gb of ram it
adds 200$ to the price tag or 100$...

I am just wondering because 1gb of ram would be how much you would have
if you didn't do this. Right? Well how much would that cost you?

Don't get me wrong, I will pay 200$ extra if need be, but yeah... I am
just curious. 

Also, will the ram problem exist whenever shakti processors come out?
