As was mentioned early in the XO-1.5 development cycle, the 1GiB of RAM
mitigates most of the problems. I have not encountered situations where the
system becomes irresponsive due to lack of memory, compared to what happened
in the XO-1. For the XO-1 I go as far as saying that it isn't usable with
more than two apps open, especially if it's a browser. Swap memory makes a
huge difference and, though slow, the laptop can perform most tasks one
requires it to - except for stuff that wants to actually allocate more than
200MiB for working data.
