I noticed that even for the simple IMDB example in Chapter 3.4, the memory usage for my R session climbs to >8GB. Is this normal? It slows my computer to a crawl, but maybe I just need more ram.

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 with 8GB ram and an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti 4GB gpu. I have another 8GB stick of ram on the way that will hopefully will resolve some of these memory problems.

Yes, training these models can indeed require a lot of memory, the upgrade you mentioned is the best answer.
