Re: 13 inch MacBook Pro Retina 8GB For Photo Editing?

Yeah I think 8gb will be fine (especially with the SSD being a newer model).  I think the whole RAM thing is messing with my head.

Thanks for the input!!

The system can only use so much RAM. It doesn't do anything with excess, unused RAM. And, as you said, with the SSD, paging is very difficult to notice.

I run all of the Office apps concurrently all day long with 4GB and I have no problems. If I were buying a new Mac today, I would get 8 and not 16.

Enjoy the new system!
