Hey guys, So I've got a base model rMBP on order right now that is scheduled for delivery sometime between July 2nd and 9th. When I ordered it I looked at the 8 gigs of ram and thought it would be fine. I currently have 8 gigs of ram in my spring 2011 MBP and haven't noticed any problems. After looking over this forum and thinking a bit I'm starting to wonder if I should have gone with the 16 gig upgrade since the RAM is soldered in and can't be modified. My thought process is that 8 gigs is currently fine. However, with a new OS coming and more apps going with retina support, the extra ram might suddenly be quite useful. I'll give you 2 examples of the most stressful things this computer will be doing: The first is playing games. I'm a big gamer and will be playing a wide variety of games including the latest and greatest. I don't think ram will be much of an issue with this since most aren't made to run on anywhere near that much ram. The second involves running a vm. In this scenario I would have my retina MBP hooked up to a 27 inch ACD both running at full resolution. During this setup I would be running one vm with windows 7 and a program called fantasy grounds. Meanwhile I would be running multiple PDFs, word and excel documents, iTunes, steam, mail, and safari with multiple tabs open. I do this on my current MBP and it uses between 6-7 gigs of ram. I plan on using this computer for around 2 years before upgrading. Based on what I'm going to be using it for should I change my order to the base model with 16 gigs of ram? This would push my ship date to the end of July which sucks but I guess would be worth it in the end if I need it. However, if I'll be fine with 8 gigs for the next 2 years or so I'll probably just be happy with what I've ordered. So what do you think?
