Why would you buy a laptop with 64GB RAM? A memory module, also called the internal memory, is an important component for a fast and proper operation of your laptop. You don’t need a lot of working memory for browsing, text processing, listening to music or streaming movies and series. When you use your laptop intensively and use memory demanding applications, more memory offers a solution. A lot of memory is ideal for gamers, hypervisors and multitaskers.
64GB RAM is recommended for, among other things, running many Virtual Machines (VMs). Virtual Machines are virtual computers with their own OS that run on the host (the laptop). These VMs all use a piece of the internal memory. The internal memory can therefore quickly reach its maximum when you have heavy or multiple VMs running. That is why we recommend using a minimum of 32GB of memory for virtual machines and in order not to run short we recommend 64GB of RAM on the laptop.
A lot of memory can be ideal for the gamer. Do you like to play games and are you also streaming, do you have chat programs open, web browsers? In that case too, a minimum of 32GB of memory is recommended, with advice to choose 64GB so that you will not run out of memory and have enough buffer at peak times.
Tabs, tabs and more tabs. Are you a real multitasker and do you like to leave a lot of tabs open in Firefox or Chrome? Then a lot of memory is required. Firefox and Chrome are real memory drainers and you can get quickly into ‘memory problems’ without realising it. That’s why you should buy a laptop with a lot of memory so that you can avoid freezings.
