  As far as RAM, I went to 1GB about 5 years ago, and it was Good
Enough.  When I got a new mobo a couple of years ago, RAM was so
cheap, I just had to go with 8GB, and I can't see myself needing
more for quite a number of years.

I'm sitting here typing this on a single-core 1.6GHz Pentium IV with a gig and a half of RAM and a 12" screen running Ubuntu. This fall I'm thinking of upgrading to an 11.6" screen, 2GHz Atom and two whole gigs of RAM. My "server" is an eMachines desktop that was $300 at Wal-mart 3 years ago, with a bunch of usb drives hanging off of it.

Believe me, I know all about "good enough".

On the other hand, I'm also guessing the pro-audio interface I have in the other room for recording my instruments for my own songs is a little pricier and better-sounding than what most people have. I don't *need* to write songs or record instruments in a way that you can actually hear them. But for me, it would suck not to.

That's just it: you *use* that pro-audio interface.

I'd bet, though, that even with eclectic music tastes you have certain listening patters that could be satisfied by having multiple 1,600 song (the number of 5MB songs that can fit in 1000MB) playlists.

Obsession with "preserving cultural heritage" is a racist impediment
to moral, physical and intellectual progress.
