Actually, yes. My install of 14.04 can reach up to 3 GB's depending on what I'm running. The lowest is around 700-800 MB's roughly. With other Lubuntu installs I've done, I've seen around 512 MB's at boot, before anything else is started. Hence my advice to the OP.
Back when I was using Ubuntu 10.04, I definitely could use up to 2 or 3 GB's easily.
