What is the most WRAM you'd be willing to accept on your Membler Industries devcart?

None. 2kB should be enough for anybody.

Whatever works. Any amount and cost is fine, within reason.

How much WRAM would you want on a devcart? How much would you be willing to pay for?

I'm a little surprised that 7/10 respondents don't think an extra 96kB of RAM is worth $2.50. 128kB might have cost $250 back when the Famicom was being designed. :)

I'd take more RAM if I can map it up into the upper half of address space.

Imagine 512 KiB of RAM + 16 KiB of ROM, where all the ROM does is load data from the PC or the CompactFlash card into RAM. Then you have The New FDS.
