They used to sell Vista computers with 1GB of RAM a lot, but I don't know, if because of public outcry, or something else, but when you go through stores right now, it's hard to see Vista computers with less, than 2GB.

    Probably that, plus the low cost of memory.  I could upgrade my notebook to 2GB for about $35, and I may do so.  The cost difference for manufacturers to put 2GB in a new computer instead of 1B, I would guess, might be a low as $10 or less, surely not much more than that, $15 - $20 at most.

    Since they buy in bulk, I bet that RAM doesn't cost them more, than couple of bucks.

    Yep, you can be sure they get it for way less than we have to pay at retail price.

    If you still unhappy....recently, I stumbled upon some web page listing historic RAM prices....8 years ago only (2000), 1GB of RAM, ran for little bit under $1,000

      Oh, believe me, I think it's a great time to be computing.  Being able to buy 2GB or RAM for $35 is amazing, compared to memory prices of years past.  Back in 1995, I bought a 4MB memory stick to upgrade a 486 computer from 4MB to 8MB.  That cost me about $200!

      It looks like most electronics become extremely cheap.
