    @JohnAskew: 2GB of RAM is plenty for a mobile device, especially with the improved resource management in Windows 8.

    Still, RAM is so cheap nowadays, and sips power, so I don't know why the OEMs aren't stuffing their tablets with 8GB+.

    Laptops are also mobile devices, no? 

    My laptop, with 4GB RAM, is over 5 years old... I'm running W7 32 bit.

    Next laptop will be 64 bit with max RAM. Developers owe that to themselves, imho.

    I have to disagree with 2GB RAM being capable of running VS2012 and other bits for development; it will be too slow. Running dumb terminals makes me sick to my stomach, even an RT.

    Looks like I'm going OEM.
