    I have a 15" 2.2Ghz 2011 MBP and I noticed that the Kernel Task was using ~ 600MB of memory whereas on my 2008 MBP it was only using about 150MB. I tried repairing disk permissions, using Onyx To clean cache is this normal. I goggled this and other 2011 MBP 15" owners seems to notice this.

    What are you doing on your Mac when this happens?
