Vista might want 700 mb, but it generally uses only 400mb of your memory, the rest is paged away. So 512mb is enough. Not fast, maybe, but enough.

cas, They're using DELL'S OWN memory table, did you bother to read the page at all? Also, that table is based off of Vista's useage, not XP's. Windows XP wants about 320MB of RAM for the OS's personal use, Vista, wants slightly less than 700MB if you follow a basic install (i.e. not turning off alot of options in the "advanced" section where most users shouldn't tread).

your memory table is wrong, because with 512MB you're able to use a lot of common applications without problems

Vista is fine, but this ploy is dispicable. The whole point of an operating system is that it "operates". You should be ashamed!
