Straight from Dell: what is one of their new PCs with half a gig of Ram good for? Running XP and some pretty recent games perhaps? Nope, with that specification, you will be able to do so much: this configuration is great for...wait for it...Booting The OS! Suddenly booting an OS is a big feature of a computer, and the only one they think their cheaper PCs are any good for! If you get a Gig of Ram, you'll apparently be able to not only boot an OS, but also check email and use spreadsheets! Unbelieveable... :D

You have to think, they're probably right. Vista sucks up so memory thats all its good for with so little.

Vista is not too bad with just 512MB of RAM. Actually, I've been using it with that amount of RAM for some time in a VM and it's bearable.

512MB here, and Vista (of many builds, including RTM) runs just fine. Slightly sluggish with Aero Glass on, but that's probably because my card's only barely DX9 compatible (nV 5200FX, 128MB).
