I only have one PC - a small subnotebook which has just 128Mb of RAM.
It's not upgradeable (later models are - unfortunately, that's the joy
of early adoption), so I have to make do with it.

Running XP I have no problems scanning from my LS-40 using VueScan.
Okay, so it's not the fastest scanning box in the world (a 4-frame
negative strip takes about 20 minutes to scan, process and save in VS)
but it chugs away nicely whilst I'm at work without any problems.

If you can get more RAM, I'd recommend it, but 128Mb is certainly plenty
assuming you're not in a rush.
