48K on the motherboard, plus 16K on a standard RAM card (eg Language Card)
though I recall some that had 64K (not directly addressable, of course).

Apple II Plus? What about the IIe? (Yep, got one of those too -- I'm sure
this one really _is_ a IIe, and I'd be especially interested in knowing
about the IIGS upgrade) What about the IIGS?

I'd suggest language card, parallel printer card -- preferably one of the
better ones such as a Grappler card, serial card, 80-column card, second
Disk ][ card and two more drives if you want to run UCSD, hard drive
controller, ...

The //e takes the same cards, except that it already has 64K RAM and has no
need of a language card; it also has provision for a special 80-column card
in Slot 3, set back from the rest of the slots.
