Memory (RAM)

2Gb is not really enough memory if you are doing any sort of Java development and you tend to open multiple copies of Eclipse.

4Gb is better, but unless you are running a 64bit OS, there is a significant amount of the address space that is eaten up my memory mapped IO, resulting in only effectively 3.2Gb or so.
