6 gb versus 8gb Tags: Memory Last response: September 28, 2011 6:10 PM in Memory Share jimandann September 28, 2011 5:08:40 PM My son needs a laptop, primarly for school work and a little gaming (no doubt). Narrowed down to two computers - real difference is 6 GB vs 8 GB .... Which is better. Also, how important is Video memory and a Graphics chip?
