I'm helping my grandma buy a new laptop because she has a little old netbook with a 1Ghz processor and 2GB RAM that can't even handle loading Facebook.
Right now, I'm trying to decide between RAM configurations. We've settled on a Dell Inspiron with these specs:
Intel Core i3
The 8GB costs about $75 more, which she's willing to pay but I'm also not sure it's necessary.
She wants to use her laptop for managing finances, reading email, browsing Facebook, storing photos, playing Minecraft, and watching Netflix mainly. For the regular browsing I'm sure 6GB is fine, but Netflix and Minecraft are the kicker. Would 6GB be able to handle Netflix and Minecraft smoothly, or would it be best to bump up the memory to 8GB?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
