1. Acronym. "Random-access memory"; computer memory available to the user for creating, loading, or running programs and for the temporary storage and manipulation of data, in which time of access to each item is independent of the storage sequence. As a storage medium, RAM is volatile, so its contents are lost when the power fails or is turned off.
EX. How much RAM does your computer hold, random internet nerd? I hold an entire flock of Ferpinshire Grey Wools hostage under the hood of my desktop. Sometimes, especially when I play games on Ultra High quality, you can hear them screaming. Ssstttsstt.
