Right now 4G and every so often I do need to use swap, for example when
I run a VM with windows, another with arch, plus a container with centos
where I run some proprietary eda tools and matlab, not to mention all
the other stuff I have running on the host.

But I have to agree that it can't compare with a system with only 256MB
of ram.
