I want to buy laptop for college use ( internet browsing , writing on word , powerpoint , youtubes ... )
I found one is good for me but it come with 2 configurations first one ram 4gb for 450$ second one is ram 8gb for 550$
Do I really need to pay 100 $ more for extra 4 gb rams ? according to my use ?
Due to the way that memory is addressed, a 64-bit O/S with 4GB RAM will have less 'room' than a 32-bit O/S with the same RAM. If you aren't going to go over 4GB, then a 32-bit version will yield more performance when having lots of open tasks at once.
W10 is light-years better than previous versions with low RAM - we provide 4GB machines to schools and businesses all the time, no problems for general use. Certainly I wouldn't pay $100 for the upgrade - just do it yourself later if you have a 64-bit O/S
