Which do you prefer?

good rhetorical question.
Of course 16 GB are better, but I have 8 coz poorfag

4GB, but I prefer 64MB

I prefer 24 gb because why the hell aren't you running 3 distros of leenix and osx all on one computer with windows holding all it together.

i have 512 megs of ram. i prefer 256 megs

More ram is always better.
Except when there are hardware/OS limitations.

Okay. I'm in the market for a laptop/ultrabook.

First: Lenovo: Aside from the superfish debacle, was alooking at them for a nice book. A check of the specs shows that the latest generation of ultra books, are frozen at 8GIG. Previous gen were upgrade capable to 16g. WTF?

Second: the de3ll xps 13 ultrabook, is stuck at 8 gig.

Clearly these companies are trying to borrow from apple in that a planned obsolescence in their flowcharts.

What is a good ultrabook to get that runs linux?

modern lenovos are horrible and that's completely disregarding the superfish problem

the xps 13 seems very nice but it's small as fuck

4GB

8GB is becoming a necessity because modern day web browsers are shit

16 GB is necessary if you're doing a lot of video editing and rendering

If 16 Gig available upgrade, will get 8gig to start. $2K seems reasonable for a good machine. Not looking for Games, more for virtual machines, compiling programs. Also fun things like working on Project Euler (c/c++), wifi hacking just for the LOLs, and the occasional snooping at the starbucks.

16GB, guess that was kinda overkill though. Not that it matters much, RAM is cheap anyway.

Depends entirely on the use case. Code compilation can take quite a portion of the RAM.

I only have 4GB, but I barely do anything on my computer so it's more than enough.

I put 8GB in my mom's home office PC but somehow it's not enough. I think it's because she refuses to use tabbed browsing, runs both Chrome and Firefox at the same time and never closes a window until she's ready to shut down the computer. Sometimes multiple instances of the same site will be open across both browsers for the whole day.

I have 12GB. I really only used like 7 at most, so I guess you can get by with 8GB. If I had 32GB though, I would do a ram drive and just have whole applications there.

Few years ago I'd say 16GB but man ram prices have ramped up suddenly here. 2x8GB costs about as much as my GPU (r9 280x)

4gb. Thinking about getting another stick but I'm hard pressed to find a reason to. Never really reach over 4gb in my daily usage. Even when I have stuff like 3DS Max, Photoshop, Firefox, Skype, Steam, torrent program and music player open.

24GB. I prefer 24GB. 16 was not enough.
32GB should be better, but I'm lazy to swap out my 4GB modules.
>>
>>46702122
Windows starts to swap already at 50% or so.
Not that you should always use less than that, but you are in the swap zone already.

Use sysinternals tools to check your swap usage.
(you should add +4 or +8gb of memory to your system. especially if you want to run memory hogs like skype in the background.)

Running different sizes of ram is a good was to get bsod
>>
>>46704394
lol Windows.
>>
>>46704394
nah, its stable as fuck.
the only way to make your system instable (bsod, kernel panic, whatever) is to apply rams with different brands AND speeds.

now... this PC runs all kinds of brands and speeds. but here is the trick: as long as you run them on a lower common speed (1066 in my case), they all work solid.

who cares about ram speed and dual channel crap, if you can have twice the amount of ram.

When I need more RAM I just download it for free from downloadmoreram .com

if you run links + cli only, you are pretty much fine. but even XP ate up ~300mb of memory.
Windows 7 comfortable eats up 2.7gb IF you have a lot. (its used, not even cached.)

I have 4 GB, thank you very much you cumhead.
