As others have said, it all depends on your OS, available memory, version of Stata and so on. The answer to your question is: It depends... I have just tried to drive up the size of the nlsw88 dataset by repeatedly -expand-ing it

**********
sysuse nlsw88.dta, clear
expand 3800
d
**********

which easily took me to "size: 298,718,000" without any complaints from Stata. I had -set mem 1G- beforehand. -des- returned that over 75% of the memory were still free...
