SharePoint Server 2013 has a minimum requirement of 24GB for development, though it works fine (so far) in a 12GB virtual machine on my Mac with 16GB of RAM. I've heard of serious issues encountered at 8GB and less.

RAM isn't even that expensive these days. On NewEgg, you can get 16GB for around $75. I'm sure the cost changes for smaller form factors like tablets, but it looks like I won't even be given the option of paying more for more RAM.

Oh well, like I said, it's silly to expect to do serious development on a tablet. Maybe it'll be more feasible in a couple years.
