    On a computer that just needs a web browser and basic desktop programs, even 4GB may be sufficient, depending on the programs you’re running. It’s borderline, but very doable. On a computer that stores massive databases, virtual machines, and other huge things in memory, even 32GB of RAM may not be enough.

    How much do you think you will use? lol As a standard, 4GB is the norm but I suggest hitting closer to 8GB as laptops do not last long and run out of space pretty fast, even when you don't use it much.
    My laptop is nearly full at 4GB and I don't have much on it. It is just 3 years old and after so many updates (and now Windows 10) it has sucked it dry.
