Here's another data point: although I haven't paid attention to the
memory consumption of Emacs 27.1, I've used it successfully for at least
10 hours at a time (probably more) on my X200 with only 4G of RAM.  I
use 'emacs-no-x-toolkit' with only a few emacs packages:


I haven't actually used 'emacs-org-caldav' or 'emacs-nov-el' recently.
Paredit, Geiser, Magit, and Notmuch's Emacs mail client are the only
out-of-tree Emacs packages that I actively use.

     Mark  (boring Emacs user :)
