I have about 1.25 GB of memory and RAD is tediously slow sometimes. Mostly startup things, like it takes about 30 seconds the first time I open a JSP. You may find it intolerable on your machine (or alternatively you may get a lot more Solitaire games played). There's a document available from IBM (sorry I don't have a link) that tells you what to configure if you want to speed things up.
