Hi all. I am considering getting a new laptop as the one I have been using (mid-2010 13" MBP, 4gb ram, 512gb 7200rpm HDD) is showing its' age and lags when multitasking. I have been looking at a refurb 2014 rMBP 13" to save some money, but can't decide between 8gb and 16gb ram even after reading multiple forum threads. I use my computer for: 1) lots of word processing 2) web browsing including watching hulu and netflix 3) powerpoint presentation 4) iphoto and some imovie (viewing and editing movies) 5) quicktime movies - I'm a school teacher, and my students use those old flip cameras to record their presentations. I often convert movie files, and it takes time with my current machine. Refurb 2014 13" rMBP i5/16gb ram/512 SSD = $1599 Refurb 2014 13" rMBP i5/8gb ram/512 SSD = $1399 I know the 16gb ram model goes pretty quickly... but do you think it's worth it? I'd appreciate your input.
