How much RAM do I need?
Generally speaking, more memory is always better. However it really depends on what you use your laptop for. If it is for everyday general use - word processing, web browsing - than 6GB to 8GB is the sweet spot. If gaming is your thing then 8GB is enough for 99% of games out there, although 16GB is becoming the new standard for the latest, most demanding titles. For professional use - video editing and encoding, CAD, graphical work then the more the merrier and you should probably aim to install as much as possible.
