    It depends on what are you doing. Please try to build Firefox “.deb” package natively on 4GB machine.

      You are definitely right. It does depend on the application. But we won’t use even 4GB for most projects. The Raspberry Pi having this versatile array of RAM’s to choose from is certainly great, but let’s be honest, we’re all going to buy the 4GB version anyway.

    I’d replace my computer if an 8GB came out.

      It would be great if there will be a future version of the Raspberry Pi that has something like that. I actually use mine for running a few docker containers.
      The pi still has a long way to go to replace my PC though.lol
