Why does the ASUS G74SX (and other computers) come with less RAM than capcity?
They packaged it with 12gb of RAM, but the motherboard holds up to 16gb.
I looked online and the extra 4gb cost about $30. Its seems that this would be a small amount of extra cost for a computer that costs over $1000 and would attract more buyers.
The reason I ask is because I am wondering if the computer functions better in some way with less than 16gb of RAM which means I shouldn't upgrade it (perhaps the "hibernate" feature?). Or perhaps its just some kind of marketing strategy thing so they can sell the ones with 16gb for much more?
