new user first post looking for some help. My 2011 MacBook Pro has given up the ghost and I’m looking to replace it. I had a lot of media which has taken up almost all of the 512gbs of my current MacBook. On my new MacBook I plan to have 512gb internal SSD and keep all my media on an external drive which I will be connecting to the laptop every time it’s in use. My question is, will 8gbs of RAM be enough for this or would 16gbs be better. It’s quite a big price jump so I don’t want to pay for extra RAM I will most likely never need. Basically the laptop will be around 750gbs of data. Whilst I have a large amount of files the laptop will not be used for any heavy duty work such as hi-def video editing or graphics. Any advice on build spec would be greatly appreciated.
