If you have the aero desktop running and all the bubblegum, use 2GB. Look in task manager to see what is running. Also there are some services you may not need. For instance, if you do not have a wireless card, then you can stop and disable the Wireless Zero Config service.

When I first got my laptop it was using about 900MB or RAM just idle. I also disabled almost all of the system tray icons and removed entries in the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run and the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run registry keys. If you know what your doing, edit the registry, if not, you shouldn't.
