I'm shopping for a new laptop. Lightroom is the driving application, and my plan is/was to maximize main memory and get at least one SSD. However, I find that some vendors offer up to 16 GBytes of main memory, but is you select an SSD, main memory is limited to 8 GBytes. ( I would conclude that they are putting the SSD in a memory slot.) My question is: "If I have to make this choice, would I be better off with the SSD or with the extra 8 GBytes of memory?" Canon 7D camera, some panorama and HDR work in Photoshop.
Thanks for your opinions,
