    My portable laptop form fact machine has only 512 MB RAM
and handles Windows XP® as well as Mandriva® and has obvious
limitation but still works in a fully acceptable fashion.
Of that 512, 128 is used as shared graphics memory.

    So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better 
for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then 
joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God 
has given him under the sun.  Ecclesiastes 8:15
