Hello, would 6GB DDR3 vs 4GB DDR3 have much difference in laptop to be worth an extra $100?
Somewhat desperate to replace my 6 yr old vaio, and the two models I'm comparing are Toshiba R835-P81 best price $799) and R835-P84 (best price $699). I was looking for the R835-P70 which is out of stock everywhere for a while so these are my two options. The only difference in my limited knowledge that can see is the 4GB vs 6GB, would it be worth the extra $100? Both 64 bit.
What you want to do is run a senario where you bought the 4gb model and after you were using it for about 6 months you came across a stuation where you actually needed the 6gb of ram and you were going to need it for a while. Now go to a vendor and see what it would cost to make your laptop 6gb and that will tell you if it's worth the $100 extra now.
Definitely not worth it. After all, you CAN replace that ram for a higher one later, and for cheaper, right? Based on those links, looks like the higher one is a magnesium alloy, which would in term make it stronger, and more durable, right?
