Hi, Presuming You meant 256Mb? Is there some reason you can't go higher than 512Mb with the memory size?

I'm pretty sure there are no laptops that support 256 Gigabyte memory. And I've never seen that size memory available for a laptop. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist of course. Most common size seems to be 2 x 8Gb for a total of 16Gb. Even that depends on what the laptop supports.

For example I just got a inexpensive (relatively speaking) Windows 8 laptop with a Touchscreen display and it came wit 4Gb. hat seems more than adequate to me. As an example, The Windows 7 Machine I'm using right now is using 1.42Gb of memory and that is with Firefox and Email and Antivirus running.

One other thing th will make it faster, if it has a SATA had drive is replacing h with a SSD. Things will be much peppier and having the virtual memory on there will make it much more responsive if it is needed.

Anyway, Good Luck

I assume you meant MB, because I don't think you can get 500gb ram for anything less than a super computer :) Anyway I use windows 8 on a netbook with 1gb ram and its quite slow. So I wouldn't recommend anything less than 1gb.

Windows 8 itself can support up to 128GB of ram and Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise can support 512GB of ram. 256GB ram sticks do not exist, the largest for non-ECC memory is 32GB which costs $1.4k for one stick and the largest server memory is 16GB. As far as i'm aware, some high end laptops can support up to 32GB of ram. You will never never need 512GB of ram in a laptop or desktop, you won't run into memory usage problems, 8GB to 16GB is already more then enough for a lot of consumers.
