Long-time reader, first-post poster I currently run a Macbook Air 2010 - but I have considered upgrading to a MBPr 2015. I have the average student usage, but mixed with heavy safari browsing and light gaming such as Football Manager 2015 and Cities Skyline. I currently have the option to buy my Mac through a company with 30% discount. My question is how much of a difference would 16 GB ram do for my type of usage - normally I keep my mac for 4-5 years and normally i wouldn't max out the ram, but due to the discount I have considered the option. Likewise, would there be any significant advantage by waiting for the Skylake update, likely to hit in September/October? The price difference is currently around 1000 danish crones for the base model with 256 GB 8 GB ram and the one with the 16 GB ram. Is the difference significant and is it worth now I have the opportunity with the big discount?
