Should I increase my notebook ram from 4GB to 8GB?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here is my notebook spec:

It comes with Windows 7 home 64 bits. Normally I watch youtube HD videos, web browsing with few tab maximum around 10 tabs, programming with this notebook. Does increasing ram have any impact for this case?

No, you won't see a performance increase at all for your purposes.

I would check your ram usage before upgrading. A lot of OEM windows installs come preloaded with bloatware that eat at your system resources. Chrome is also becoming a bit of a memory hog these days.

Having said that, if the laptop comes with an HDD, I would upgrade to an ssd before getting more ram. You'll see a way higher performance boost.
