    So yesterday I installed 4GB of memory. I am wondering why sitting idle or using just Safari with everything else closed leaves me with 2.60-3.0 (Higher if I am lucky) of RAM free. I've greatly reduced languages and other junk I don't need so basically the machine has all I want without the fluff. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like you have plenty of free RAM
    Are you having issues?

    What specifically are you looking for?

    2.6-3GB is still a lot of RAM. remember that the computer is also running stuff behind the scenes. if you really want to see what it is doing look at your activities manager.
