^ No need of 16 GB ram. :facepalm:

4 GB would be more than enough.
Nope. 4 Gigs won't cut it very well on Windows 10 64-bit.
OP is going to use chrome and Office applications such as MS Excel,etc. These are memory hogging applications. IMO, it would be wiser to get more than 4 Gigs. 8 GIGS is recommended.

Buy windows 7,8.1 you can upgrade free to windows 10, and if you don't like the windows 10 you can also revert back to the original os.But buying a new windows will end up in costing more to you.

8 GB is pretty standard these days,by buying 4GB a stick he will be ended up in filling one slot of the ram with less amount of ram.

8 is great any work pc
16 is better if programming full stack
work pc benefit more from more cores and more ram. which means AMD is better on cheaper budget.

at our office, 2 yrs back we replaced all machines with 16 gb ram
