Apple to Boost Standard Memory?
Appleinsider reports that Apple will soon boost the included RAM on current Mac models to 512MB.
Last January, the Mac maker begun offering 512MB of built-in memory across its PowerBook G4 line; some of the company's higher-end Power Mac desktops also ship standard with this higher memory capacity. But for the most part, the standard configured Macintosh includes only 256MB of RAM.
Including 256MB of RAM as a minimum on many Mac models has been a criticism from Mac users. As stated in the article, while 256MB is the minimum required for Mac OS X, 512MB and more offers a smoother experience for the end user.
