    Hello, i have a question, about the RAM for ICS

    Im new to Android and have no clue! But a complete Geek in Windows Computers

    1) E.g Windows 7 takes around 2gb RAM to run smoothly - How much does ICS need?

    2) When Windows is simply turned on Nothing running Out of 2GB you can see that 800mb ish is used ----- If i just turn on ICS how much does it use? With no apps running?

    3) When i use open Chrome, Youtube, and BBC - Windows RAM goes to 1gb/2gb --- If i open up Youtube and a Tab BBC how much RAM is used up?

    Thank You, sorry its hard to understand but if you need more info reply back.

    The questions you asked don't have a cut and dried answer, and Android cannot be compared in any way to Windows.

    On your number 1, the answer is that it varies but it uses memory pretty efficiently.
    On #2, same answer. It all depends on your widgets and other things like mail clients that run in the background.

    I don't have a clue regarding your #3
