Hello Everyone, I did search this topic and could not find a thread discussing it. I consider myself a heavy multi-tasking user of apps such as, Mail, Excel, VPN, Adobe, Team Viewer. Sometimes Parallels... Really not much video or audio stuff. I am retiring my slower base config 2017 12” MacBook. Upgrading to 2019 MacBook Pro 13” w/ 256gb. Do you think I would see a NOTICEABLE see the difference in performance with the 16gb ram option? Since I multi-task, I am leaning towards it, but build time does take an extra week. I get a new computer every 1.5-2.5 yrs.... (Anyone aware of this discussion anywhere? Performance gains w/ 16gb option) I could not find any threads/talks about speed difference. Back in the PC days, power users ALWAYS bought as much memory as they could afford but now with macs you dont see it as much. Which memory config did you get and WHY?
