I use visual studio extensively, often with three instances open plus a browser. 16GB has been adequate for me but if you can afford it 32 would probably be good to have.

As for the display, I would avoid 4K in a laptop. The pixel density just gets too high and you might finding yourself using large fonts. For me, since I use the laptop so extensively, I insist on a 17-inch display - 43cm.

I went for a gaming laptop. It has a 2070Q video card in it, 17-inch display and a good amount of storage (16GB RAM, 512MB SSD, 1TB HD). Best of all, it weighs about five pounds or 2.3kg. It's power brick weighs more than it does. I highly recommend this configuration. It is an MSI GL75 but other companies have similar products. I really like this one.
