I just saw this in my local news.It's a story about smart phone makers being hit by the recession and lack of chip production.In the story on the 14th paragraph it talks about memory shortage due to lack of supply and how PC prices could increase.

Cue panic buying and prices shooting through the roof,
Do you work for a memory manufacturer btw?

No,I don't work for a memory manufacturer.Actually I am retired.
But I do remember back in 2008 when I could purchase 4 GB DDR2-800 RAM for $50 and now memory prices went up substantially in price last year to nearly double that.It would be another burden to see the prices increase further.

Things tend to have a ceiling of what people will pay for them but I do know its annoying that so-called old tech can be more valuable than new sometimes
