How much is the battery life reduced by increasing RAM?
Logic would dictate that increasing the RAM in any Laptop would decrease the battery life. But by how much? If I have a machine with 2 GB and can take it to 8 GB should I? So what is the effect of moving a machine from 2 to 4, 2 to 8 or on the newer machines to 16 GB of RAM? Is there any real research on this or just old wives tales?
