I know this has been asked many times but I would like some input from others if it's possible. Currently, I have a surface pro 3 that I use for school. I'll be apply to medical school this summer (studying for the MCAT) and I need a second computer. ATM I use my SP3 with OneNote for handwriting notes and then use a Windows desktop to organize my notes quite often by pulling images online and from digital text books and YouTube. So this Mini needs to be able to have about ~10 tabs open, obviously run OneNote, iTunes, Mail, PowerPoint, and Word without struggling. So my question is 4gb or 8gb of ram? I went by BestBuy today and tried out the MacBook Air 4gb and 8gb ram under the same conditions and the 4gb ran a little over 3gb while the 8gb used about 5gb, which seemed odd. Also, I plan on installing 256gb SSD. Thanks.
