My current system should have enough memory (4GB), but it's the lower average right now and if I want to run multiple applications at once - which is needed - memory is getting scarce.
In addition to make Windows lighter and tablet-friendlier, Microsoft had to reduce the footprint on the HDD of the current iteration, Windows 8. But how does Windows 8 compare to the predecessor in terms of memory consumption? Reviews of Windows 8 often concentrate only on the obvious aspects (look and feel), but not on the improvements from the inside.
Thanks for any answers.
