I've meant to constantly record and monitor my RAM usage over a month to see how much I truly use, but I've never actually got around to it. How much RAM do you use/buy with your machines? I've always drifted towards 16GB, because I do some work in Photoshop and Illustrator, and because it just makes me feel like I'll get more out of my machine. But on the other hand, I always wonder if I'm just throwing money away, and never getting close to using that much. It'd also save me good money on new devices going for 8GB. I'm also that person that buys the i7 as well. When I had a desktop I would buy M/i3/i5 for my mobile machine, but I only use 1 device now. It's funny because I only do this spec gluttony thing with my computers. I have no problem using a 4 year old smartphone, or one that uses low to mid tier specs.
