Though misattributed to Bill Gates, in the mid-1980’s it was stated that “640k of RAM should be enough for anybody”. The first new home computer my dad got came with 16MB of RAM, which was later upgraded to 48. My first three laptops all had 192MB of RAM; I edited many a video on them. My first new laptop had 512MB of RAM, back in 2004. I got 2GB in the next one, then 4, then 6 (later upgraded to 12), and now I’m at 16GB of RAM, eyeballing a bit of a bump, because five copies of Windows at a time tends to run a bit sluggish when I’m doing virtualization.
