When I upgraded a laptop to 2x2GB last year, I paid $54 for the modules. I just tried to buy the same memory for a new laptop, and it was >$100 (in-store, Microcenter, for the same brand/model I had bought last year). I checked online, and it seems all the 4GB kits are around $100 now.

What happened? Did I get a killer deal last time, or has RAM doubled in price?

RAM prices have been going up over the past year. And they are expected to continue to do so.
