All I can say is that Windows 7 runs even better whenever you add additional RAM to your PC.

I'm running the x86_64 version on my laptop with 4GB of RAM, and it runs FLAWLESSLY. Other than the Windows Media Player glitch (I just use WinAmp), and Internet Explorer 8 being buggy, the core OS is rock-solid even in the Beta version.

On Topic: It's amazing to see how much of your battery life is sucked dry by the LCD... Makes you wonder how much longer it will be until OLED displays are used in laptops.
