I guess I'm probably a lot older than you.... but 4GB of RAM is plenty
to run VirtualBox + Linux, etc. I've spent years using laptops with
a VM and another OS and that much (maybe less) memory, while working

It doesn't really matter much for using VirtualBox.
You should see if you have VT-x instructions -- that's critical for
performance. The Atom Z530 does:

This isn't very hard. I've done it a million times on Windows, OS X,
etc. It used to be kind of hard with VMware back in 1998, but now
there is this thing called Google which makes it very easy to find
information about how to do things...

Well give it a shot. I'm a little conflicted, since obviously it is
also very useful to us (the sage community) that you're testing Erik
Bray's cygwin installer, etc...
