Even 6GB seems excessive, but it's usually better to buy it now than later
when you find they are no longer making ram for your motherboard, or only
making it at an excessive price.

Maybe  12G is what a windows guy knows his setup will need, it's certainly
overkill for linux (forgive the slight dig Brian).

Agreed on storage too, you never have enough, especially as Brian has
