How much RAM do I need now / for the future?
I kind of asked this question in another thread but thought it may be a good discussion by itself.
I'm looking into getting a ASUS laptop, but they are only capable of 4G of RAM. I know this is fine for now, but I'm hoping to keep this laptop for 5 / 7 years and still be productive with it.
I want to run windows 7 64bit.
Mainly using it for multimedia burning DVDs, Office work, some "simple" gaming.
Is 4G going to be enough for a while into the future? Or is selling a laptop upgradable to 8G just a way to make more money?
