Did you buy an Apple with 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of ram?
What type of Apple computer did you buy?
Mine came with 16GB in it.
Mine came with 768 MB RAM, now I have 8 GB and 32 GB RAM in my two Macs.
My 2011 had 4 GB by default, but I BTOd it to the maximum-supported 8 GB.
My PowerBook G4 came with 1.25 GB, and is currently using 57 MB (posting from this one now). My 2011 MBP came with 4 GB and is currently using 270 MB.
Both have way more than I'll ever need.
My late 2009 iMac and 2012 cMBP both came with 4GB. I've since upgraded them to 8 and 16 GB respectively.
13 inch retina MBP 4GB of ram. Many people think 4GB is not enough but truth be told, I haven't ran into any issues with anything I need to accomplish.
It all depends on what you do.
If you deal with graphics you should get 8GB at the minimum.
If you just browse the web. .. well a Coleco would be good enough for you if it had a web browser.
My usage is light compared to some. Browsing, document writing, Excel spreadsheets, some amateur photo editing, Garageband recording and media consumption. That being said, I would venture to say a 4GB model would be fine for many users.
Came with 4GB, upgraded it to 8GB.
Edit to add: Now Mavericks happily delivers up to 14GB on 8GB physical RAM with compression so this question doesn't mean the same as it would have done in a non-compressed RAM world....
My 2010 MacBook came with 2GB. It now has 8GB.
My 2012 Mac Mini came with 4GB. It now has 8GB.
My 2012 rMBP was BTO. It came with 16GB.
What is it you are asking? Are you doing a statistical study or something?
color me confused.
All my Macs have at least 16GB of RAM in it, except:
1. My 2010 17" - 8GB
2. My MacBook Air - 8GB
3. My 27" iMac - 32GB
4. My two nMPs - 64GB
There is too little options in this poll. Also a lot of us have bought several macbooks.
Mine came with 4 GB, but I bought it with the intent of upgrading to 16 GB (which I have).
Oh no.... the poll will be flawed!
The 2011 MBP I got in 2012 came with 4GiB, which I upgraded right out of the box to 8GiB, only to need to replace it quickly by 16GiB, and ending up looking for a 32GiB solution last year.
Late 2013 13" rMBP - i5/8GB/256GB
Late 2013 21.5" iMac - i5/8GB/256GB
At least I can upgrade the iMac if needed - although I appreciate not all that straightforward.
My Late 2011 15' Macbook Pro came with 4 Gb of ram, but I've upgraded to 8 that seems to be good for my use. Only when I use Virtual Machines, the Mac seems to slow down a little bit.
My Macintosh Plus came with 1MB, but I've upgraded it to a stunning 4MB.
I bought mine used with 8gb and have upgraded it to 16gb. Due to running Parallels+Windows some I find the 16gb very helpful.
16gb 15" rMBP
Bought it with 4, DIY upgrade to 16.
I'm not saying it's not. I'm saying it depends on what you want to do.
Besides what's the point of a 64bit operating system if you're just going to put 4gb of RAM in it?
Ummm do you know what the benefits of 64-bit are vs 32-bit?
