You could also go for the i3 and upgrade the RAM yourself to 8 GiB, might save some cash.
Also consider getting a small SSD (now or later), that's also a huge performance boost.
Thanks. I guess that's another thing to consider. This is more of a short term thing.

Maybe I will get the 4gb ram and see how it runs and upgrade to 6-8 if need be. I just hope the i3 will keep up.

Sorry for typos in the original post. That damn autocorrect
