HP Omen 15.6" 960M 2GB, 16GB DDR3 Laptop

Why is is $300 dollars more for 8 extra gb of memory? Seems like no difference between the $799 8gb model and $1089 16gb model other than memory. On HP webside its only a $65 dollar upgrade to get 16gb of memory.

Agreed… but the ram is soldered on, so you will not be able to upgrade later and for that reason the 16gb ram is the way to go
