    Hi all
    maybe a stupid question. However what scenarios would a person ever need more ram than what they already have? I got a 2011 MBA 4GIG Ram. Seems to be doing me fine for my usage. However when in future do you believe i would have a problem where I wish I had more RAM.

    Or is it one of them difficult questions where no one can really answer, apart from myself, until i ever if i ever do come across this problem?

    If you're doing program intensive stuff, then I would advise to get more RAM, but if it's just day to day stuff (word, web browsing, videos), then you'll be fine. But if a nice sale comes up for your specific ram, it won't do any harm in buying it. :p

    Yeah. Other than the fact that MBA RAM is not upgradeable...
