    Why would you ever need more then 16gigs of ram? Unless for virtualisation.
    I have 8gigs in my computer and it's still more than enough.

    @jerodev Chrome, Spotify, sublime, and a very hefty VM for our central server app. That was my dev flow for months... with only 8gb ram. It was a nightmare!

    Now that I have 32, i have about half to spare, and the VM no longer crawls along! ^_^

    I'm also much more productive now that I don't have to worry about running out of memory with each new tab...

    @jerodev when I had 8gb on my gaming laptop I used to get "system low on mem" after a few minutes of playing gta 5. Mostly because I severely limited the swap file to half a gig for speed purposes. My boss has a 16 gig laptop and he also runs out of ram when using a vm.

    I got 24gb now and never looked back. So there you go.

    @jerodev Server. Lets say there is 24 TB ZFS storage and one TB is allocated for Squid. Then, lets say GitLab is installed. So you have 24GB ram usage from ZFS, 32GB squid cache and GitLab will fill the rest. 64 GB used.

    I'm still at 8GB and doing fine. Just don't have more that 20 open tabs in chrome and don't run windows and 8GB seems plenty
