According to a report by HKPEC, the bargain basement pricing trend in the memory sector isn't going change until the middle of next quarter, because prices are being pushed down by "sluggish demand." As low as prices are, HKEPC predicts that they will drop even further next month. April will mark the end of the first quarter, and the site says U.S. PC makers will seek to avoid inventory buildup in order to show better Q1 fiscal results. The March-April time frame also shows "no sign of a PC replacement cycle in the wake of Vista's release," resulting in low demand. Memory prices aren't expected to rebound until May, HKEPC says.
