Apple The popularity of Apple Computer's iPod digital music players is helping it sell more Macs, but so far it hasn't been enough to spark a rise in the company's share of the personal computer market. According to research firm Gartner, worldwide PC shipments totaled 57 million units in the first quarter of 2006, representing a 13.1 percent increase over the same period last year. But in that time, Apple's share of the worldwide market slipped from 2.2 percent to a mere 2.0 percent.

So. The fact is 32 MB will handle it.

Handle is one thing. 64MB can handle Windows XP. Being useable is another thing.

If you couldn't live up with only 32MB on your machine, then it's pointless to mention.

That's without mentioning that Apple is recommending 256MB as a minimum for Tiger :
