    I don't know how much RAM Windows 10 uses, but I plan on buying a SP4 and I'm wondering how much memory I should get for it.

    I would likely have Outlook running in the background at all times, and I usually have a few tabs in Chrome open. I'm wondering how much RAM that would consume and leave me with when I actually want to do some more serious work. (Large excel files, some basic use of the Adobe suite)

    How much of your RAM is used when you're not actively using any serious software on your SP4?

    Here is after a reboot on my 4GB M3 (ESET/MBAMPRO/Glasswire running in background prior to Chrome launch)

    Chrome is a memory hog after all. Unfortunately, it sounds like the Edge browser isn't working out too well for everyone.
