I made my order for a base 13" MBP with touch bar (256 ssd, 8gb ram) ages ago, with an estimated delivery window of 7-13th December. The wait is killing me and the more I think about it and the more I roam these forums, the more I'm doubting my selection. I'm not bothered about the storage space, as I mostly work from the cloud, but I'm worried about the RAM. Firstly, it's a cost thing. Even the base laptop is really pushing my budget and it's an extra £160 odd (with student discount) to double the RAM. I don't think I need 16gb, but I need convincing. I'm definitely after more of a pro-sumer laptop, so the standard complaints about the new models don't bother me. I'm just after something powerful enough, well built and reliable and I'm fed up with Dell. I do edit photos and videos, but mostly on my desktop. The worst the laptop will likely be put through is having multiple tabs open on Safari/Chrome alongside Word, maybe Excel, One Note, Final Draft and occasionally Photoshop - a few of these at once. 8GB will do, right?
