##### March monthly poll
« on: March 02, 2009, 12:23:06 AM »
For the month of March we thought it would be interesting to see how much total computer memory you have in the computer. Feel free to talk about how your system is performing with the memory it has, if you plan on upgrading, the history of computers you've used in the past and how much memory they've had in them, etc. This poll also supports multiple voting if you have more than one computer.

What do the options mean?

Because I didn't want to have an extensive list of every possible memory combination I've made a list that's comprised of options with greater than (>) and less than (<) values. If your computer had 1GB you'd select > 512 <= 1GB because you have more than 512 and equal to 1GB. If you had 1.5GB of memory you'd choose > 1GB <= 2GB because you have more than 1GB but less than 2GB. Hope that makes sense.

If you need help with determining how much memory you have in your computer see document CH000149.

All past monthly polls and results can also be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

First to post! Whoo!

I have 2GB of RAM in my laptop...

My server has some weird amount in it... its around 360MB...

My evil iMac, soon to have ArchLinux for PPC on it, 129MB of RAM.

Moms laptop (really my laptop) 256MB
Computers I deal with at school... mostly donated computers, anywhere from 100MB to 1GB.. I wish we could afford to just get rid of them all and replace them with one specific model of a higher quality, it would be easier to ghost them that way..

Grats on the first post Zylstra and good information. I thought it might be interesting for individuals such as yourself who have access to multiple computers to have the ability to vote more than once. So for those of you who have more than one computer with different memory totals you're welcome to submit more than one vote.

My family's PC has 1GB of RAM, my laptop has 2GB, my server has 2GB and my desktop has 4GB.
I have some other computers lying around, which aren't in service right now - they vary from 8MB to 1GB.
As for performance, my family's PC is fine for what they need it for, my laptop chugs along great when I use it, which is rare.  My server is performing just fine, but as the RAM is only PC133 I don't think 2GB is actually benefiting it.  4GB on my desktop is fine too, but when I do my new build later this year I'm going for more.

Vista laptop, 4GB (maxed out when I bought it)
XP desktop, 1GB (I think this is maxed out)

Old PC, 512MB (I kind of throw whatever OS I want on it... right now it has NT4, if memory serves; haven't really bothered with it since I got the laptop, however- Virtual PC runs almost any OS at 100% speed on the laptop, so I can test my programs & installers without resorting to going through arduous install/reinstall processes...

Toshiba Satellite 440CDX, 98SE 144MB (maxed out)

Thinkpad 755CDV Win31 and DOS 6, 8MB (maxes out at 40MB, but there is no way I'll find the module at a reasonable price these days!)

Vista Laptop runs the best of all of them, of course, being my only dual core machine likely being the main factor there. Runs everything, except a few games, faster then my desktop, which has the sole advantage of a separate graphics card (FX 5500)
