Ok, so I just got my 17" MacBook Pro about 2 weeks ago. I run an app (bought from the Mac Store) called "Free Memory" and it's always running in the menu bar at the top. When I first start up my MacBook Pro, there's no problem and it usually registers that I have about 2.5GB of Ram available to me. No Problem. However, if I start using iTunes and Chrome at the same time it drops to about 1.5 GB Ram that's still free...ok fine. I usually have about 6 or 7 tabs open and itunes running and after leaving it like that for awhile, eventually my available Ram just seems to drop like a rock. It goes all the down to somewhere between 345MB and 745MB of Ram available. (As I type this I have 4 tabs in Chrome open and Itunes as well and I'm sitting at 678MB of Ram available). Why is this happening? I owned a late 2010 Macbook pro and had the same App running and it registered that I could have the same tasks going and yet it would never dip below 1.5GB of available Ram...could I possibly have some sort of Ram defect? I just ordered 16GB of Corsair Ram that I was planning to upgrade anyways, but I just want to make sure this problem doesn't continue...any ideas whats eating up all the ram or causing it to drop so dramatically over time?
