Yeah.. I suppose it is subjective. The 4GB of memory was more of a reference of how the OS was dealing with the memory e.g. swapping loads pre programs running etc. than the actual amount of memory. e.g. if you had 1GB of ram then maybe Windows 7 would run slower because it was swapping in/out memory for programs to run, but with 4GB there should not be that much of a memory swap (to the HD). So the OS should just be using the main memory.
