I have 3 gb on my dell 1330. It is enough for my laptop 'coz i don't do gaming on pc anymore. I was gonna install xp but it will void my warranty. I still get alot of error message compared to my desktop which has xp.

"Needs" is not correct. Vista basic or even premium can be enjoyed with 2GB of half decent RAM. Of course upping your RAM will improve the over all experience, especially when using demanding programs or games, but not everyone needs this.

4GB is wise, but for the most part, not "needed". But at the current prices, you might as well chuck in those extra sticks.

it's funny I was just talking about this yesterday. I really think 4gb is the way to go if you have to deal with vista. I'm thinking of getting a Mac soon and skipping the whole vista crap.

4Gig is overkill and im running Vista. With the price of RAM these days its a wonder anyone is running less than 2Gig.

ram are cheap these days, there are a few games that would eat your ram's memory alive. i have 2gb of ram and i have to close a lot of programs to run games like supreme commander. and no 4gb of ram is not overkill for any OS if you are a power users especially if you are using vista and 64bit.
