Why would you need more then 8 in this one?
I tend to use my laptops as desktops with an external monitor in the office and then I can grab and go when I'm on the road for work. Synchronizing between desktop and laptop became a pain, easier to just keep current backups and use one machine.
Each time a new version of your web browser, office suite, anti-virus, etc is released it tends to gobble up more memory than the last version. So being able to add lots of memory is a nice way to future proof your investment since memory gets cheaper and cheaper as time goes by. Asus products tend to last longer, or at least they have fewer warranty claims than other brands according to info from warranty vendor square trade.
As for me personally I run a LOT of extensions in my web browser and like to keep a LOT of tabs open at the same time. Combine that with my desktop gadgets and custom GUI add-ons and I use up 8GB easily.
