    I was running Google Chrome which sucked 533mb's of ram.

    Cider running Sims 3 was using 850 mb's of ram.

    Kernal_Task was using: 156 mb's of ram.

    With a total of 16mb's free, and 1.1gb's - 1.6 gb's swap to the hdd.

    Good guess.

    Or just run less apps at the same time.

    Haven't had a chance to try Google Chrome and really have no desire to yet as I find Safari to be an excellent browser.

    If there is no difference or advantage to using it, why not just use Safari and free up the Ram?
    Just a thought.
