Android Studio 3.0.0 on Windows: Review

 I installed this release in my Windows PC with 4 GB ram and it hangs little bit. Built is stable but takes up most of the resources. I had Android Studio 2.3.3 and was working quite well without hanging. Now I had to close other windows, browsers and open Android Studio 3.0.0 only.
