What kind of programs or more importantly, how many of them are running at the same time that you can justify needing that much RAM? :|

Development (especially databases in SQL) is a big RAM eater. If you are developing client-server SQL, RAM loading required gets ridiculous on the server end.

Besides, if your mobo takes DDR3, RAM is still silly-cheap. Corsair Vengeance 16GB (8GBx2) DDR3-1600 is $69/pair - at MicroCenter, not the Egg.. Despite having Corsair XMS3 4GBx2 DDR3-1333 sitting on a shelf, I'm looking hard at getting silly and going with 32GB of DDR3-1600, especially at less than $150 total including taxes. The price is Way Too Low to pass up, even though my needing that much RAM - for anything - are exactly none.

4x 2GB of Corsair Vengance. Perfect for me on my gaming rig. Lenovo T400 also has 2x 4GB.

16gb in the Macbook Retina ... thing is, I think most people who get past a certain point with ram have kinda bought it because they can. Not because they needed it.

That's due entirely to the Silly-Season pricing on DDR3 (which has continued, even in 8GB territory). When 8GBx2 is $70 (retail, not online) whether or not to buy isn't the question.

64GB.

I vividly remember the time where 64MB of ram was a lot. I must be getting old.

My main personal Workstation runs 16GB - Most relevant

My laptop runs 4GB

I run several ESXi Servers with 32gb Physical Ram in most of them, although a few only have 16gb.

I run 24GB because that's my mobo max and I'm a performance junkie.

My main machine - Laptop - has 4GB installed from factory. (New Toshiba Laptop win Win8). I am contemplating on doubling that at least, but still uncertain at this point. My desktop which died (Less than 45 days after purchase and warranty swapped for what I have now), had 6GB and I never noticed any issues performance wise (Win7).

My other laptop which is a Compaq v5000 (YES - OLD!!!) which is still kicking has 1GB of RAM with 128mb of that acting as shared memory.

Tower I use for a server - 1.5GB of Ram - Step Daughter's PC - 2GB.

16GB in my HP Envy 15, which is my workstation. It was on sale for G.Skill 2x8GB DDR3 for $80 a few months ago. Couldn't pass it up. :)

I have 8GB in my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro 13.
