    Mac with a bit of Ram

    just been emailed this link Mac future development

    Can you imagine a Mac running 16Tb of RAM, what would you need that amount of RAM for, unless you are running something like Vista that eats resources for fun.

    What was the quote from bill gates? “640k ought to be enough for anybody”

    I would imagine that the 16Tb of RAM would apply, mainly to the server versions.

    Maybe, but it's basically just trying to be future proof.

    the first "server" I used was a BBC B with 32kB of RAM and dual floppy discs. The first "proper" server had a 20Mb hard disc.

    Now those figures are just laughable and it's possible to have 16Tb of disc space and I'm sure you could have terabytes of RAM if you have the money. Who knows what we'll need tomorrow!

    True!

    Top end Mac Pro's now can come with a massive 32Gb of RAM!
