Is Vista worth it? Do I have a choice? Hardly anyone sells a computer now without it; they add XP for 200$ which is a large part of the total cost of the durn machine! How much memory will I need to run it well?
The amount of RAM you need doesn't depend solely on Vista. While about 1 GB is a good enough amount for Vista you should also consider what softwares you are going to use. Photo and Video editing applications (to make slide show and the likes) take a lot of memory space. For those applications a minimum of 2 GB is required.
