I see computers being advertised with 6-8 gb of RAM now days everywhere, even at walmart. I am wondering who is perpetuating this, is it the OS/application developers or is it some sort of marketing ploy to sell more memory? Every recent customer I have dealt with thinks they need 6 gb of RAM for word processing and internet/email minimum, good luck trying to explain to them, not only do they not understand what memory is, their friend down the street has 8 gb of RAM and their computer is so fast! Anyone else notice this weirdness lately? Maybe its an offshoot from Vista being such a large pile of crap.
