Maximum Memory Recommended for OS X Lion Users
While Apple's official minimum RAM requirement for OS X Lion is 2GB, industry experts agree 4GB of RAM is the minimum that should be installed for optimum performance of typical daily computer usage. For more advanced uses such as graphics production, A/V editing, and/or running a virtual machine, 8GB or more installed RAM is highly recommended and can be of night and day performance benefit.
