So I've been using my RMBP for about a week now and I love it. I can't see myself wanting another laptop anytime soon. Especially since this model will likely be the current design for 5-6 years. However, the more I think about it, I wonder if I'll regret not getting 16GB of RAM and just getting the base model. I don't do anything now that even takes up 8GB Ram, probably not close, but I want to be able to game on this computer and run a few intensive apps from time to time (Visual Studio in Parallels, etc). Assuming I keep this computer for let's say 4-5 years, will 16GB be recommended by that time? I know it'll probably be standard in nicer laptops, but will it be necessary for newer applications? Especially since Windows 8 is coming out and I'll be running that in Bootcamp and Parallels, I can't help but wonder if I made a mistake by not future proofing my laptop. Or is it future proofed? Let me know what y'all think!
