Hi, just looking for some advice. I'm about to buy a new Macbook Pro and I'm trying to work out whether I need to stretch my budget and upgrade the RAM from 4gb to 8gb - as I can't really work out whether I need it.

I'll be using the Macbook for uni. I run a lot of processor heavy applications simultaneously and my current mac mini just can't hack it, plus I want the portability a mac book offers.

Applications I use and would have running are Photoshop, Illustrator, Google Sketchup, Parallels running Windows and then AutoCAD, plus probably the usual itunes, Mail, Safari etc etc.

I'm guessing I probably do now that I've just written it all down - and I probably shouldn't be running them all at once!

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
