Either should be fine… more important question, is do you need more than 2 displays? If so, get the Pro.

Both are very capable CPUs so if you know you use something that uses over 16GB of ram get the 24GB M2.

That said I would say in the vast majority of use cases more than 16GB of memory isn't needed, so more CPU cores and higher memory bandwidth would speed things up a bit.

I went for the M2 Pro with 16GB of RAM!

Same I had ordered 24gb M2 but realized I need 3 displays so I went with 16GB M2 Pro.
