you normally find that in the summer the cost of ram falls, one can only assume the reason for this is that the manufacturer has a surplus of stock or there is new technology around the corner.

I sometimes am baffled why in the summer time it falls as a lot more computers and such-forth are purchased in the winter and one would expect the cost of memory to fall with more people buying.

If you know that people are going to buy anyway you can raise the price.

You may persuade someone to buy, when they otherwise wouldn't, by lowering the price.
