It all depends on what you are doing.

Virtual Machines
Working with Video (compiling and editing)
Working with audio compiling and editing
Working with large photos

Go with 8G

Everything else, including gaming, 4G is plenty.

4GB should be good unless you have a particular application that is memory hungry (like Photoshop e.g.).
