To many people I know of, "1 GB of ram" is the same as having "gobs of ram". I still know people with as little as 64 to 128 megs of ram. If they left as many as 12 apps open, even if they use nearly no CPU power when idle, the memory usage alone will kill their gameplay performance since swapping to disk is always slower than using RAM.
