Well, since you have a IIci, you're aware that your screen is coming out
of main memory, too.  X does take a good bit of memory--especially since
you're usually running quite a few processes under it.  Emacs is a hog
in general.  I wasn't aware that you could put 2 meg SIMMs in a mac.
Hmm...  In fact, the hardware guide doesn't list that as a possibility.
I'm not saying that it won't work--just try it before you buy, or have
a guarantee of some sort.

If you're interested in running X and emacs, I'd probably want to go to
12 or 20 MB.  Just IMO, of course...
