The Great PC RAM Swindle

AppleInsider on how Apple’s move to 64-bit in Snow Leopard exposes a “great PC swindle”:

One developer we consulted about the issue noted, “consumers are being scammed by [PC] OEMs on a large scale. OEMs will encourage customers to upgrade a 2GB machine to 4GB, even though the usable RAM might be limited to 2.3GB. This is especially a problem on high-end gaming machines that have huge graphics cards as well as lots of RAM.”
