Depends on the sites as well. If you are playing videos, then probably even i7 cannot take it.

Why would u need to open 20 tabs at a time??? What are you micro-managing?
Thatís too over hahaha

As said, even i7 or I think Mbp also got difficulties in running smoothly

Is 8gb ram or 16gb ram better for mba?

Cos the upgrade is $270 and Iím not sure how to fully utilised 16gb ram?
If I open a lot of apps or tabs, I will be using the ram more but wouldnít the mba be trottling more heat and slowing down the performance?

I can understand the upgrade from base model i3 to i5, mainly itís cheap $150. But not sure about the ram???

Any seniors views on this?
IMHO, it's worth the pain. You'll not feel a need to upgrade for the lifespan of the Mac. And you won't be able to anyway..
