Asking sticky from price / value perspective. I can afford either but is additional 4gb (No, I am not quoting from Apple and price is after GCs) in this case worth $200? If and when I decide to sell I'd be lucky to get half the additional amount I spent on ram

Not that I understand where you get your pricing from if not Apple or what a GC is but...

$200 for 4GB RAM is twice what Apple seems to be quoting on their build site.

I am fine with 4GB ram except if I'm running multiple Virtual (Windows) Machines. But for $100 I'd get the extra ram.

Get the extra RAM. It'll be worth it. I got 4 GB's because I purchased my MBA at a sale. I would have upgraded if I didn't.

For what it's worth, I just ordered a 13" with 8GB, 2.0i7, 256GB. For the sole reason of longevity. I've been using a 2007 iMac for over 5 years and that was a base model(added ram). So this should keep me for a while.

With how big of a hog ml is, it is definitely worth the upgrade.
