    So I've recently been juggling between to just stay put with the base 8GB of RAM or to upgrade to 16GB just to better future proof it. Little info on my habits I'm not going to be using a lot of video editing on it, mainly just for streaming, browsing the web, word processing and such. So I'm just undecided if the extra RAM and money spent will be better over the long haul. Would appreciate any feedback Thanks

    Although 8 GBs should be sufficient for what you've described, I would still recommend you go with the 16 GBs option, if possible.

    All depends on how long you intend on keeping the laptop. If you keeping it for 5 years or more then definitely get the 16GB. well, well worth the extra money. Especially since you will not be able to upgrade it later on. You never know, you may end up doing some video editing on 1080p or higher video and then the RAM will be really useful.

    Yeah I was pretty much thinking what you just wrote down.. I plan to keep it at least 5 years so I think I've made my decision! Now the hard part is parting away with $2000 for this machine!
