I've pretty much decided to buy this tomorrow from the stores and i'm trying to bury my 8GB Ram requirements. The 13" 1.7ghz i5 will only be used for general stuff + coding, basic web graphics and maybe the odd home movie editing and and dSLR photos. So i should have enough power. But, i will want to run virtual windows xp so i can test my stuff in I.E - that is a definite. I dont tend to run the virtual os all day, only for 10 mins whilst i test etc. And i thought 8GB might allow the OS to run a little quicker with more programs open. Shall i just forget about more ram and just get it or does anyone remember this happening in the past, where 2 months after launch they get more upgrade options? I'm also thinking 4gb my be the ceiling limit to force people who want more to get a MBP.
