I usually surf with multiple tabs open, stream video and maybe have the odd app open. My activity monitor says I'm using 9gb of ram. I'm glad I've updated my memory from 8gb to 16gb. I'm not sure if I need more or I'll ever need more of if more will improve my performance in any way.

1. Server computer which has been running 25 days shows that 7.99 out of 8.00 GB RAM used, however only 4.53 GB is actually in use. Never swapped (which is generally bad for performance).
2. My iMac shows 7.6 of 8 GB RAM used, but only 4.87 is in actual use. It's currently running Safari, Screen Sharing, Skitch, Mail, Activity Monitor, CrashPlan, ScanSnap, Text Expander, DropBox, Hazel, Alfred, BetterTouchTool, ShouldISleep, and DragonDrop.
3. Entertainment Center shows 3.81 of 4.00 GB used but is only using 1.92 GB. At some time in the past swapping occurred (it's been up 28 days).
Notice that the "Memory Pressure" of all three systems is in the Green.
Retina iMac, 15" MacBook Pro, Mac mini with Yosemite Server, 7 other Macs and 5 iOS devices in the household. Yes, it's too many.
