    Not that long ago 2gb modules were considered over-priced and overkill, now they're the norm. Same will happen with these 4gb ones before long.

    Why not add some logic on the board to make a portion of it appear as a sata device (bootable).

    I'm surprised no motherboard manufacturer has done this (like iRam, but on the main board, and configurable).

    Because as soon as you remove the power from it all the data dissappears - if you make it appear like a disk drive people will put something on it then sue when it vanishes. iRam and so on work by providing battery backup, which adds cost when most people won't want something like that for RAM.

    ExpressGate and other onboard flash memory is a better way to go.

    I think this is personally great, as kelniel stated 4gb modules will soon be the norm I know plenty of people currently running 12gb which a few years ago would have been just as extreme as this.
