re: 16GB or 32GB RAM for Web Development? VIEW POST


I've never seen a person that regretted getting more RAM. You should go with min 32GB or 64GB if that's into your budget. I'd definitely go with 64GB if the plan is to use the machine for 5-6 years.


64GB is definitely not in my budget. $600AUD for the 32GB upgrade is plenty... : )


Just checked your profile, and you're a contract developer. Can you go for one of the upgrades and use it as a tax write off? I have no idea of Australian tax laws.

It might be a depreciating asset over time, so possibly can be a bit of a tax write off each year.

You're correct, it's tax deductible, but I still have to pay for it minus my marginal tax rate 🙂
