In the PC world, I don't know.  But SRAM was fairly popular in the S-
100 world, even with its higher power dissipation.  My old MITS 
Altair had 2 boards of 4K TI DRAM and it would drop bits if you 
looked at it crossways.  When I replaced those with some SSM static 
RAM boards (91L02s), I was much happier.
