I always wanted a smooth development machine which can run multiple virtual machine (VM) at once, which is a must when testing app that is meant to be portable across different platform. So just before Ramadhan (in July), I bought 8GB RAM and 1TB hdd from a local pc shop and proceed to set-up my development machine.
The machine already has 4GB ram so adding the extra RAM bumped it to 12GB. The machine I was running is an older Intel Core i5, which is decent enough to execute all the VM that is necessarily when developing and testing the app.
with all those RAM, seems it’ll be quite a while before I use the swap space again.
