It amazes me that you need a gigabyte of ram to do pretty much anything, when 30 years ago, the Mac classic had one thousandth that much (1MB - yes I had to look that up), and about a thousand the processor speed too (1 core 8MHz v. 4-core 2 GHz). Of course, MacOS at the time did almost no multitasking (user level at least), was BW, etc. Still.
