Memory banks

You never hear people talking about “memory banks” now, when referring to their computer’s random access memory storage capabilities.

It’s always “RAM” this, or “SDRAM” that. Never “memory banks”.

I think using the word “memory banks” makes your computer seem much larger than life and more mysterious than something like “Single In-line Memory Module”.

As a challenge, I’d like you to use the phrase “memory banks” all of next week when referring to your computer.
