Best 8GB RAM Laptops

When it comes to laptops, we always recommend our readers and viewers to get a machine with at least 8GB RAM. Yes, Windows 10 essentially only needs 2GB RAM, but having the extra headroom will always prove useful for running other programs. Anything less than 8GB RAM could be a deal-breaker, especially when you have heavy Google Chrome instances taking a significant chunk of memory. Keeping that in mind, we have managed to put together a list of 8GB RAM laptops. Looking for the cheapest 8GB RAM laptop is always an option but we suggest checking out other specs too. It's also worth pointing out that even a lot of expensive laptops will most likely have an 8GB RAM variant. They're focused on budget shoppers looking for, say, an 8GB RAM laptop with i5 processor. So do keep that in mind as well while looking for an 8GB RAM laptop price in India. Most people won't have an issue when it comes to the 8GB RAM laptop price as such since the options are plenty. Let's take a look
