So I'm going to my college end of this month. I almost pull the trigger for the base RMBP with education price but I don't if I will survive with the 8GB ram. I'm not sure what program I will use in my college. I'm studying Computer Security and Forensics (anyone?), i'm sure i will run windows on it. Plus i will be using it for 3 to 4 years. If I buy base RMBP/16GB ram with education price, the price will be almost same as base RMBP retail price. If I buy base RMBP/8GB (stock) with education price, maybe I can get something else (external hdd, magic mouse etc) with the money. help me out guys EDIT: can you guys screen shot your ram usage and tell me what you doing on it? I can roughly know how much a 8GB ram can handle.
