    Min of 2gb I would say. You can run it on 1gb but its very slow

    Not sure why you couldn't just google 'how much RAM is needed to run windows vista'?

    For "ordinairy" work Vista does not need 4Gb of ram, it does not even need 2Gb most of the time.

    It really depends on what you are actually DOING with the computer.

    Basic web, email etc then a 2Gb machine is ample.

    For video editing etc then 4Gb (although 32 bit Vista will only ever use about 3.5Gb).
