This is true for all the high-end stuff.  Sometimes you'll see a
particular combination that they'll push out at a loss-leader price,
but in general if you want to get exactly what you need, you not only
have to pay for it but you have to wait for it.  There are lots of
combinations, it doesn't make sense to try to stock all of them,
unlike typical undergraduate lib arts major machines that barely run
Word and Excel.

RAM.  Low, low price indeed!
