Gruber shared today a breakdown done by Jonathan Zdziarski: http://daringfireball.net/linked/2016/11/07/zdziarski-mbp-ram
With all the debate around what Pro users need, I thought it would be interesting to do a quick survey of the system memory we're using on a normal work day. This is not for Mac users only, this is for creators in general.
- I'm on a Macbook Pro Mid2014.
- Activity Monitor shows I'm using 14.58 of 16GB.
- I'm running Sketch (2 files, 9 pages, bunch of artboards), Framer, Chrome (16 tabs), Skype, Slack, Outlook, Sublime, GitHub, Terminal and quite a number of background tasks. I haven't had any issues or slowdowns.
