I’m buying a new laptop soon and I’m trying to decide whether to get 16Gb of RAM or 32Gb. My family’s desktop computer only has 2Gb and there is a lot of stuff I cannot do, so I want quite a bit more in the laptop.
For everyone with 16Gb, how often does blender crash because of not enough memory? How high can you get the resolutions of water and fire simulations, and how high is needed for realistic results? What are you doing when you would need more memory?
I’m going to college so I will have this laptop for quite a few years. The upgrade from 16 to 32Gb costs $150 - $400 more depending on what company I’m buying it from.
