    First of all, sorry about my english i hope u all can understand it :D

    So, i install Yosemite on my MBP. ( )

    The problem is my Ram, i use the "Memory Clean" app and is always arround 200 and 50mb free. Photo -->
    With mavericks i use to had between 1gb - 700mb.

    When i ask a friend with a MBP with 2gb RAM he told me it works better than mavs.

    Any help?

    That app was not very specific. What do you see if you check memory in Activity Monitor?

    Do you see "GREEN" ? Green is good.

    The amount of used RAM is completely irrelevant here. Memory pressure is what you're supposed to look at. If it's in the lower registers, then you are safe and everything is working fine. Memory management in OS X is a bit different and the amount that is being used isn't necessarily in actual use by apps.

    It's green but, it's still working so slow with no high memory demands apps open (Mail, Chrome, Finder, Dropbox, Puush, Memory Clean)

    I have no memory left, i dont understand why... i delete all the heavy programs and still the same. It's working so slow.

    I'm thinking to Install Yosemite from 0 (Format the MBP) , but i don't wanna do it if the problem is that i need more RAM.

    IDK, i need an advice. I need to do something.

    NEVER EVER EVER EVER clean your RAM. it's stupid and counter productive. The system is trying to cache things to make it faster for you and you slow it down.

    Also, sometimes your RAM looks mostly used, but it's because it's made some of it inactive that it doesn't need to use. So just relax, things are fine, and don't clean your memory.
