XP vs Vista memory usage
Dec 9, 2007

Out of curiousity would someone with a Vista system see how much physical memory is available compared to XP

I have a new Latitude D630 2Gb memory running XP, quite happy with it. Using the task manager I see that only with IE 7 running there is about 1.6 Gb of physical memory available.

Could someone with a 2 Gb Vista system do the same. Other memory size system users may also wish to chime in.

With 2 Gb of memory except for programs like Photoshop most software should have plenty of memory so should run just as well with either operating system.

I'm not pushing any agenda here, just curious.
