Its not overkill if you run VMs.
Yeah, I have an early 2011 MBP, quad core 2.0ghz i7. I really just run FC14 in a VM, but do a lot of number-crunching in there. Do you think the bump from 8 to 16 will make a big difference? I just wonder if what I'm doing is processor or disk bound, and the ram won't matter.

Also, OSX 10.7 is brutally bad at virtual memory management. I'm on 10.8 now, and I think it's a little better, but I just wonder if this is worth the money.

It's not overkill if you like laughing at memory leaks in video games, or other software waiting for a patch

So my laptop will run the same without any slight difference or will the rating in my laptop go down because I switched from 1600 to 1333 RAM?

1600 does run faster but its not very significant difference, most likely you wouldn't notice. like 1-2% maybe

If you have the Citi Forward card, they have same the promotion as Discover, except their is electronic and computer purchase, which of course newegg would qualify for. It's a promo you have to sign up for from their flier...5% bonus points.

I'm trying to figure out the same, myself. The contract I jut rolled off of required me to have a vm of win7 and centos running pretty much at all times. It was absolute hell on 8gb.

I hope I wont be back in that situation again but with my work, you never know. I wonder if 16 would be a noticeable hit to battery life. Since I bumped up to 10.8, it has been horrific. At the same time though, it could be that my battery appears to be toast ("Service Battery").

Thanks but not sure if Newegg qualifies for Citi Q4 5%:

Good deal and great efforts to organize them all together. Repped even though I don't buy anything.

Would 16gb be overkill for a home server if i planned on doing some transcribing with it?
