It seems only yesterday that having 512MB in a desktop (much less a notebook) is considered more than enough. But it seems that games are taking up more and more ram nowaday. I recently notice that the X1000 I'm using is getting really choppy after gaming for a few hours (City of heroes). A look at task manager shows over 600MB+ being used and the swapfile are being hit constantly (the 4200rpm HD certainly didn't help). Have we reach the point that you'll need over 512MB for a laptop? Should 1 GB be the minium now?
