    Is there a utility that will tell me what my memory usage is?

    P.S. Free!

    Activity Monitor can (located in /Applications/Utilities/). Click on the System Memory tab at the bottom.

    iStat makes a widget for the dashboard that will tell you memory usage and more.

    You can use Activity Monitor, located in Applications > Utilites.

    You can also install iStat menus, a free 3rd party application. They also have a dashboard widget version.

    Finally, if you are so inclined, you can use the command line program "top".
