Hey everyone, I recently converted to a Mac after using PCs for about 15 years. I bought the entry level aluminum MacBook, and overall, I am very satisfied. I've read a lot about how memory is managed (wired, active, inactive, free), but I feel like I won't be completely comfortable until I get some feedback on my personal experience. My MB came with 2 gigs of memory. I have not done anything really complex as of yet, and on any given day, I am running the following program, with maybe a little variation: -Firefox (3.0.6 with anywhere from 2 to 6 tabs open) -Skype -iTunes -Logitech Control Center (for my mouse) -The following widgets: clock, calender, local weather, sports news updater, dash monitor, sticky notes, calculator, dictionary, and unit converter. So, I am not running anything that should be eating memory (I think). My computer hasn't been restarted in a 3 days, and my memory usage is currently: ~185 Wired ~935 Active ~530 Inactive ~135 Free There is no noticeable decrease in performance unless I open a lot of applications at once (Firefox, Open Office, Skype, VirtualBox, NetNewsWire, iTunes, iPhoto, etc.). Also, I notice when Vuze is open, that my Free memory sinks to below 10mb, despite the fact that I'm not running anything else, and I'm only downloading one item (though I have read that Vuze has issues with memory leaks). Anyway, sorry for being so long-winded, but I basically just want someone to tell me that this is all normal and it's just that I don't quite understand how my new MB uses memory yet. Or, if it's not normal, provide some sort of explanation . Thanks!
