Well Charles you more than any of us would know, but I think that we have to look at what is now showing up at the curbs on garbage day.
512 megs of RAM may be the minimum that we find, with newer faster motherboards so it may make sense to take advantage of the increased RAM and faster computers.

I believe that these computers will start to arrive at the Working Centre soon.
