Best 8GB RAM Laptops

By Vignesh Giridharan | Price Updated on 17-Jan-2021

We at Digit.in often tell our readers and viewers that 8GB is the minimum amount of RAM a laptop should have for a smooth web browsing and multitasking experience. Even though Microsoft claims that 2GB RAM is sufficient to get Windows 10 up and running, we believe that a laptop should come with not 4GB RAM but 8GB RAM. It's the minimum you'll need for activities like software testing and online video playback. Whether it's Linux or Windows, 8GB is enough memory space to keep Chrome's heavy instances running at the same time without choking and stalling. To that end, we have created a list of what we believe are the best 8GB RAM laptops. Although the prices of the products mentioned in the list given below have been updated as of 17th Jan 2021, the list itself may have changed since it was last published due to the launch of new products in the market since then.

The earlier MacBook Air was one of the most affordable and powerful ultrabooks one could buy and while the 2018 MacBook Air continues to be powerful, it is no longer the best value for money device. It is still a great device for work which is guaranteed to last you a few years. It is perfect for watching movies as well, but if you're looking for a photo or video editing machine, this is definitely not it. For everything else, its great.

Launched only a few months ago, the 2019 Asus VivoBook 14 has a thinner and lighter body with slimmer bezels. The keyboard is backlit and the touchpad is a precision unit. While some variants come with an integrated Intel graphics card, some variants come with a discrete graphics card made by Nvidia. The highest is an Nvidia GeForce MX 250.

The Acer Swift 3 is an ideal choice for someone looking to buy a Thin and Light laptop with oodles of computing power. The laptop's 13-inch non-glare Full HD display is particularly good to look at and the precision touchpad is a cinch to use. One variant of the Swift 3 even features 4G LTE connectivity, making working on the go a reality. One thing to note about the Swift 3 is that the 8GB RAM is soldered to the motherboard with no means of expansion. You can read our review of it to know more.

Launched sometime in 2018, the Asus VivoBook S14 is still as relevant as it was last year. This Thin and Light model employs a thin (even slightly shaky) build but makes up for it in outright computing power. The audio quality from the device's two down-firing SonicMaster-powered speakers is surprisingly clear and crisp. The VivoBook S14 is for users who expect good performance; its solid-state drive ensures that. You can read more about the Asus VivoBook S14 in our review.
