Of course it would be! I wouldn't hope for Apple to have reasonable RAM prices, just less crazy ones

$100 for the upgrade is nice because Apple gives students a $100 discount on the 13" MacBook Pro, so students could get a MBP for $1199 with a "free" RAM upgrade (which is sorta what I did with my mini). A lot of people (i.e., me) might not like the idea of immediately performing surgery on their brand-new MacBook themselves and would be willing to pay a little bit extra for Apple to ship it right. They just wouldn't pay what Apple currently charges, because that shit is bananas.

and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong
