8GB RAM & 256GB SSD or 16GB RAM & 128GB in laptop?

Hi guys,

I'm going to buy my first laptop soon. After a lot of research, I decided to buy Samsung Series 5 550P5C-S04. However, I'm still not sure which version should I choose:

  • 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD


  • 16GB RAM and 128GB SSD

This laptop is going to be my main device for, well, almost everything. Web developing, Photoshop, photo and video editing, gaming etc.

I would buy 128GB SSD easily but I'm not convinced it will be enough for Windows 8 after a year or so. My Windows 7 after a year is taking almost entire 40GB system-only partition, so I'm guessing that W8 will take more space. And there will be recovery partition for sure.

What are your thoughts?
