What exactly do you mean by “all features enabled”?

The RAM usage is mostly determined by the program you need to write and
how you write it.

I have many programs written in CHICKEN Scheme running on a 32bits ARM
machine with only 512 MB of RAM, they all take between a few hundreds of
KB and to a few tenths of MB.
