I want to buy more memory for my new powerbook (520c,
68040, no FPU).
How much do I need to allocate to Mathematica
If I upgrade this powerbook with a plug-in PowerPC chip,
and upgrade to the PowerMac native version of Mathematica
will I require more memory than when using the native 680x0
version ? How much more?
I am aware that the minimum required memory allocation
for Mathematica is only a _minimal_ allocation to make
Mathematica barely run, and that giving mma more memory
can greatly improve its performance. Is there
any limit to benefits from more memory ? Is there a
point where additional memory will yield no additional
So how much memory to allocate to Mathematica ?
680x0 non enhanced: ___MB
PowerMac Native: ___MB
Answering these questions will help me decide how much memory to buy.
