I’m a believer in having the maximum amount of RAM you can in you computer running any complex software, such as Optuma. My Lenovo Laptop has 32GB of RAM, and when I’m running complex Optuma scripts I frequently see my RAM usage head upwards from 20% to 75%, along with all the other applications I normally have running. Relying on the Windows Paging File to meet memory requirements will slow operations down considerably, especially if you are using a mechanical HDD. An SSD will speed things up a bit.
My suggestion is to go for a laptop that provides 16GB RAM for a start, but has the ability to be upgraded to 32GB if you find you are running into memory issues.
