Heavy use of VI's can use way more than 16GB. I agree. But now that SSD speeds are so high you would assume there would be improved utilization of that in stead of keeping it all in the RAM. But you have a valid point. My point still stands though, that there is no other laptop that can do it better. BTW, have you tried running the same VSTI's in Studio One or Pro Tools on macOS? I find that Logic is way more buggy than Studio One and Pro Tools on both my iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and even a Mac Mini.
