12GB is the patrician choice.
It's actually not. 16GB is standard nowadays.
This! Unless you're working on a side project or using a lower-end rig for other various reasons. But for your main rig 16GB is the standard.
I have 16 Gigs in my main machine, but I also use that one for photoshop/premiere and music production. I use my laptop for pretty much only browsing the web and reading and I never reach past 4 Gig doing that. So I'd say, you do you, there's no point in upgrading if you don't need it.
i mean, main rig has 8gb, t510 has 4gb and im working in setting up a minecraft server with 2gb and a ib with 1gb, 16gb seems too much of a meme, yet again i didnt upgrade my pc until its intel 2 quad and 2gb of ram shit the bed
