Good thing I stocked up on this RAM and also when Dell had the laptop RAMs for $15 also... Nowadays it cost almost $100 to get 4GBs of Laptop/Desktop RAMs... why did prices go up?

prices went up because DDR3 came out, I think DDR3 consumes half the power and I believe 50% higher data rate. Also I discovered last night on my Acer Aspire 1410 with SU3500 cpu that when I go down to 1 ram dimm/module/stick my battery life doubles vs 2 of the same size dimm/modules/sticks. So to have dual channel 128-bit transfers you sacrifice half the battery life. Most people on laptops won't miss the dual channel so keeping to 1 DIMM is well worth the 11-13hrs on a 4400mAH battery.
