My most recent laptop, now 12 months old ( an ASUS i7 has 16 Gb of Ram, 
plus a 60Gb SSD for the OS) - I regularly run a VM with 2+Gb of Ram 
assigned, plus develop apps using MySql, php, apache and related systems 
and test these from the VM and the base CentOS 6.3 system under some 
load. As mentioned, RAM is cheap and the benefits of having it available 
are well utilised by CentOS and VMs.
