Yes, it is gobs.  If you have 4GB+, perhaps it's not, but not
everyone has 4GB+.  Particularly in non-Western countries.  I have
just returned from Ethiopia, for example, where owning a computer is
rare; for those who do, 256 MB is common.  I suspect that we *do*
live in different realities.

RAM is extremely cheap these days.

If $100 bucks is cheap to you, then so be it.  It's not to me, a
graduate student.

Very well said, Kevin. Thanks for a reminder that the world is a mix
of very different situations and that "cheap" is a word that should
used in such a general, meaningless way.
