1 Gig of memory is quite adequate.  I have a machine running 8.10 with
384MiB of memory and a 500MHz CPU with out any problems.
The times have suffered lock ups have always been hardware problems.
Generally reseating cables etc. has cured them, or replacing power supplies.
Just because a machine is new doesn’t mean there isn’t a hardware problem.
