Here’s another compelling example of when having more memory can achieve a very large gain in performance.
I created a 25K X 12.7K pixel panorama saving as a 1.66GB 16-bit TIF file in PTGui Pro (highly recommended for panoramas).
With only 8GB memory, the MacBook Pro took 2.4X longer than 16GB memory.
To use the MacBook Pro as their only computer, the benefits of 16GB are compelling for big jobs, and remember that these results are with a fast solid state drive; with a hard drive the time would be off the chart, likely 700 seconds or more.
Get the memory and drive all installed and ready to use in an MPG Pro Laptop.
