Blackfriday warning for Lenovo X1 Carbon 

@sheogorath Not everyone needs that much RAM.My main computer has 8GB and that's perfect.It's never full and I don't even have SWAP.The laptop I'm writing this from has 2GB and that's really problematic these days.But for a laptop 4GB should be absolutely enough.

@sheogorath My Netbook have 2 Gigs Ram. Its ok for me. 12-16 Gigs are absolutly useless if you dont want to play the latest games or high video editing.

@rusty Maybe I'm too heavy on multi-tasking but just looking at my RAM right now, shows: 7.5 GB Used actively by programs, 2.5 GB for Disk cache and the rest marked as free. with less than 12 GB the system would already by swapping permanently (Of course I could reconfigure it to not do this, but looking at the defaults)

Oh yeah, and of course half a gigabyte of swap is used anyway. despite enough memory being available.

I wouldn't say you need to be into gaming or video editing to use RAM.

@sheogorath Then u may use a bad system or too much progs. My system runs with open browser around 1,5gb. without any configs. May Linux are more for heavy ram collectors.
