That set was $115 after rebate (Fry's) up until a couple of days ago.  $139 is good but they'll go lower before long I think. Now if we could just get Crucial and the others to drop to around $100 for 16GB.

I'm using these modules for 32GB of ram in my W520. Things are stable and I've had no issues.

Hi all

 

Currently in Singapore, shops are selling 8GB (1 DIMM) DDR3 SO-DIMM Corsair stick at S$149 (almost 5 times more expensive than 4GB stick = $30). -_-

 

Price is still more expensive compared to other country, perhaps due to new stocks...

 

Happy 2012! :smileytongue::smileyhappy::smileyvery-happy:

Just picked up four 8gb sodimms from the local microcenter for 69.99 each. Not bad for local retail pricing. Instant gratification, and my VMs like the extra memory.
