    I sometimes wonder what some of you lot actually DO with all of the power you throw at your machines.

    I'm not trying to be insulting - I can't think of much that *I* do that actually requires a beast of a computer any more.

    Obviously some of you work entirely in 3D or video spaces where it helps to have as high an overhead as possible - but for photography, web or any of the sort of vector/CAD stuff I typically do each day.. I find it a little crazy.


    I am the complete opposite of the < 30 year old version of me who always bought new gen tech, to the best I could afford, haha.

    • I have 32gb at present, which gets eaten batch editing in bridge/PS while I work in indesign and have chrome open. Swap is often up to 8gbcraigatkinson
    • Ok. To be sure, RAM is the one thing that should be upped as much as affordably possible - especially if your'e regularly hitting 8Gb of swap!Nairn
    • ^^ This, baby.babydick
    • I have 64gb of ram that gets eaten regularlyformed
    • If you do any type of serious gfx work, never run Chrome at the same time or even better, don't install it at all.face_melter
