How much RAM do I need for my laptop?

The RAM, also known as the internal memory, influences the speed of your laptop. Do you want to buy a laptop to surf the web, game, or edit photos, but are you not sure how much RAM you need? On this page, we'll help you make the best choice.

1. What are you going to use your laptop for?

We recommend a certain amount of RAM for different usage situations. The general rule is: the larger the RAM, the faster your laptop. In order to make things easy for you, we've listed a few usage situations.

2. Can you expand the RAM memory of your laptop?

Programs are getting increasingly heavy, so if you've got a laptop that's been around for a few years, chances are the RAM memory isn't up to the way you use it anymore. That's why it's a good idea to choose a laptop with expandable memory. For most laptops, expanding the memory is easy, which allows you to make your laptop future proof. We state whether the RAM is expandable in the specifications of each laptop.
