    My mid 2013 retina mac has been flawless until the last few days, no new applications installed but now every 60 seconds or so it pauses with the the spinning wheel thing. Happens to more often when changing from Safari to Mail for example. The delays happen and nothing works takes about 15 seconds and its really annoying as you can imagine!

    Looking at the activity monitor it always that nearly all the ram is used, even after a restart and SMC reset. Kernel task is always using around 500mb then its safari about 250mb and rest is made up of mail (170) etc.

    Any ideas?!

    RAM usage again!!!

    OSX uses all the RAM it can all of the time unused RAM is wasted RAM.

    The App memory section is just stufff loaded into RAM for quick usage by the system if that RAM is needed it will clear instantly and be available for new tasks if your memory pressure is green and shows no page outs so it is dealing with your workload with ease. This is completely normal for RAM manangement in OSX.

    Just enjoy it and use it unless there is a problem or your memory pressure graph turns red or yellow it's not even worth thinking about.
