Is 4GB RAM enough for ASUS Zenbook with CORE M5Y10 processor?

I am buying the ASUS Zenbook with CORE M5Y10 processor.. It is quoted as "13.3"M-5Y10;8GB;128". I am having a 512GB SDD installed instead of the 256GB that it comes with. They now say that the memory is 4GB and not upgradable to 8GB and that 4GB is more than enough. Those places on internet that I have seen this laptop advertised it always had 8GB in the specifications.

The main things that I want to do is MS Office applications (though fairly large Excel based programs), and internet surfing (including movies). Is 4GB enough?

yes, 4 Gb is enough. Also, you will able to utilise 4 GB, if u have 64 bit processor with 64 bit OS.

If using 32 bit OS, 2.5 Gb is only usable.

Also, u have SSD as HDD, ur performance will suffer unlike traditional spindle drives.

If you want keep ur notebook w/o lags, avoid opening FF or browser while working on excel.

watching movies, use VLC.

4 gb is enough most of the time but sure enough you will run into situations that you wish you had more RAM, especially if you plan to load large excel files. Get 8gb, it is well worth it. Everything will be faster.
