    “rising prices”

    Let’s have some perspective here.
    “The cost of semiconductor components in computers has fallen by an average of 7.8 per cent a year since 2000, but is set to rise 2.8 per cent this year, according to data from Gartner, the research consultancy.”

    Some of us can remember when core memory costs $1 per byte. Think about it. $1 billion USD for 1 GB of memory. Only you could not buy a GB, the largest amount was a few megabytes.
