tiny pc's RAM

  jesta 23:56 21 Nov 2004

my sister has brought a tiny laptop with it quoting that it has 1 gb RAM and when she got it she checked it by using the Control Panels System and it only said 960mb RAM does anyone know why this is?

The rest is likely given over to onboard graphics.

so if my sister wanted to play games and say the game needed 1GB RAM(i know theres no gamethat are avaliable yet) her pc would b able to play it(considering the graphics card is good enough)

It will depend on the graphics chip and how much can be shared with the regular RAM.
