    I'm not sure a ~£50 laptop upgrade deserves bragging rights!

    i hope you have an SSD, partitioned, possibly two SSD's.. otherwise, it's all pointless

    I think you'll find a 16GB laptop upgrade is £90+.

    I can understand having an SSD would speed things up but why the emphasis on partitioned SSD?

    Any hoo now I can run VM's like no mans business!

    Apologies, you're right. I assumed you have 4 ram slots, not 2

    Wish I did have 4 slots then I could put 32GB in! And run a full development, build and deployment environment in virtual machines on one box. drooool......

    16gb,32 or even 64gb makes no difference as you can on run 8gb max at anyone time........Or am I missing something ?

    I think you must be otherwise why some some high spec machines come with 16gb pre-installed?

    At the prospect of having four ram slots.

    Where did you hear that?

    I run 64bit openSUSE 12.1, RAM is only limited by the number of slots and motherboard support.

    why do you need to run 3 VM's?

    See first comment.

    I had 12gb at 2000MHz & with using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 it only uses up to 8gb.

    1 VM I use for Meego/Java dev in Linux. 1 VM hosts all my source code and wiki (SVN + Trac). I may decide to start a Windows XP or 7 VM to list something on ebay or do something in Windows. Plus I might also want to start a OSX VM to do some iOS dev (hopefully soon).

    Also since I'd like to take advantage of automated deployment software having a deployment VM provisioned from scratch sounds sensible. Thus even 16GB of RAM seems pitiful in the grand scheme of things.
