    I typically have around 800 MB spare RAM once I have booted Parallels with Windows 10 and the (only) app I use in Windows.
    (Total RAM on the Mac is 8 GB)

    Is that enough spare?

    Hello willmow, please let us know how much Ram(Memory) you have allocated to your Windows virtual machine? Thanks!

    I've allocated 2 GB to the VM. All seems to be working fine, but the reason I ask is that I'm soon upgrading to a new Mac and am wondering whether I should go to 16 GB of RAM (added expense...).

    Hello @willmow , yes you can go with the 16GB RAM and then you can increase the amount of RAM http://kb.parallels.com/113649 assigned to Windows virtual machine for optimal performance.
    Thanks
