    Any application that truly benefits from 8GB ram or is the 8GB ram more for running multiple applications at the same time?

    Thanks.

    It's all a question of degrees. Audio applications like digital audio workstations for example almost always use sampled instruments heavily. Gigabyte piano-samples aren't uncommon, add a slew of other instruments and you quickly run out.
