:|-> BTW, WHY does more HwM take more essence? A bigger drive doesn't
:|->more space in my computer...
:| I agree totally. From what I understand of RAM chips nowadays,
:|the size difference between a 2MB RAM chip and a 128MB RAM chip is
:|negligible. The cost goes up fast but not the size, or even the number
:|connections.... hopefully MaM will get rid of this rather silly problem.
:I don't think it's got anything to do with size.
:Think of it as an addressing problem.
:(Going into modern day competer terms now)
:That's my view on why more headware memory = more essense cost.

Which is exactly the point that got snipped from the end of my
original post. That has some interesting implications IMO, in that its
not just "memory", its a nuerally integrated array with processing
