I now go with at least 16gb for my dev laptops. but even 16 might not be enough if you are handling very large DBs.

In 32 GB Ram you can handle medium and large database.

can you please define large database.. are you talking by GBs? how much GB would you refer?

also 16 or 32 GB? is there a science to determine it or just user experience? also if you wanted to prove this to a team, is there any MSDN article that you can use/refer?

I don't think you will ever find something written because the real answer is "it depends".

You said it is for a laptop so definitely not a server that will get hammered by a lot of users.

And also, we don't know your database. Maybe you have a 100 gb database but if you are only dealing with always the same 100 records from the same table, then you don't need much memory.
