Hi! I am looking to buy an new laptop and the one I am looking at comes with 16 G of RAM and 4 G on the NVIDIA GeForceŽ GTX 675M. The memory can be expanded up to 32 G. Would that be worthwhile? Thanks for your help.

Hi!

It can spend all what you can throw on it but 16GB on laptop should be enough anyway. It actually depends on how dense/heavy your scenes are but any GFX software likes lots of RAM anyway :). Also you can use multiple LW instances at once (and some Pshop or similar in Backgorund) so adding 32GB wont' hurt for sure but it's not a must :). I see some people even nowdays when ram is cheap (at least DDR3) use 2-4GB machines for doing work so it's possible :).

But understand that only 64Bit software will benefit from any Ram higher than 3GB. So if you have 32GB Ram but run 32Bit Software, then you'll not benefit from the extra Ram.
