    So I edit videos for my youtube channel. Nothing intense, 1080p 60fps would be the usual format for the videos I edit. I use a program called Lightworks, and typically export in 720p and eventually 1080p.

    I edit on my main rig of course but I wanted something that I could edit comfortably with on the go that wasn't a beast to carry (By "comfortably" I mean will it be able to do it without getting topped out). Gaming would be light if I decide to game on it at all. It will mostly be an editing machine that I also use for school work.

    Question time:

    Should I get the option with 16GB of RAM, or would I be able to comfortably edit my videos with only 8GB?

    I think 8gb would be fine for you but It's better to go with the 16gb model because you cannot upgrade the RAM later.

    Yeah I guess the question is whether or not the extra $300 is worth it for "future proofing"
  4. Just get the extra 8gb... unless money is real tight, just spend the bit extra to get more ram. Especially, since like it was stated, it can't be upgraded later.

    My original plan was to get the 8GB model and then pick up a Samsung T3 SSD (the 250GB). Honestly I tested Lightworks on my main rig and it never used above a gig of RAM, so I will most likely be going this route.
