    Hey guys, :D
    So I am looking forward to buy a macbook pro and I would like to know if 4Gb or 8Gb suits me best.
    I intend to do some:
    - Gopro video editing (1080p, 720p)
    - web browsing
    - spotify
    - documentation
    - photo editing
    Thx in advance

    Will you be multitasking these activities or just one at a time? I would go 8 if your budget allows as I consider 4 to not be very much these days but it would probably suffice with those tasks if you weren't planning on multitasking much.

    4GB will work, but 8GB may be nicer and gives you the peace of mind that your machine will have enough ram for the future. Apps and OS almost always need more ram when newer versions are released.

    2.4/8/256 offers the best value for the money.
