Remember when memory was expensive?

Heavy memory demand by the new ''Copland'' operating system software, also
known as Macintosh System 8. It
now appears that Copland, due in the first half of next year, will require
22 to 24 megabytes of random-access
memory, or RAM. The current Macintosh System 7.5 requires 8 to 16 megabytes.

Amelio, responding to an employee's question, said the higher RAM
requirement shouldn't be a big problem because
most PCs next year -- from Apple as well as its competitors -- will come
with 32 megabytes, up from the 16 megabytes
standard on most machines today.
