Default Running OSX with stock RAM? - 07-15-2009, 05:43 PM

Anybody here try running their 10v on the factory 1GB RAM? My wife's co-worker wants one, but doesn't want to upgrade the RAM to 2gb. Think there'll be any issues running OSX on it? I'm going to help her install OSX. What should I defeat to help it run better?

It should run fine, it is just faster with 2 gigs is all. I have a mini 9 I bought it with 1 gig and it ran ok, but upgraded to 2.

I didn't really need to, but I won't ever have to do it again, it is easy on the 9, and it was only $27.
