3GB may not really wasted even in 32-bit. The +, maybe - up to a point
(3.25-3.5GB is the best I have seen a decent machine have available with a

the processor and memory power - it is not wasted - it will be used to run
the Virtual Machine.

No ... good choice. Fast updates, real updates, lean and mean
with a small footprint.
