Im running Centos 7 on my Laptop with 8Gb ram as my daily driver.

Firefox (multiple browsers open with multiple tabs) ,Evolution and 
thunderbird  for my mail, Pycharm for running my code, Libreoffice for 
my docs ( 10 Docs open at 1 time), here and there i run Vmware 
workstation for Labs on other Linux distros.

All this Happening my RAM has never reached full capacity and ive never 
seen my system using SWAP in "System Monitor. So if you have 4GB or 8GB 
fire it up and monitor , you might not even need 16GB ram.
