Ram never higher than 75%?

    Not really sure if this is in the correct section.

    Basically my mac often struggles for ram, if i am browsing with a fair few tabs it is usually at 70-73% RAM. I've never seen it go higher even when it freezes due to low memory or when Safari pages all refresh due to low memory. (Or when I have to kill 'Safari Web Content'). I thought this was because it is 32bit but I read that the same doesn't exactly apply to OSX.

    So why does it never go above 75%?

    Hi there,

    Could you post a screenshot of the RAM tab of your activity monitor when this happens?

    I think it was at about 72% when I took this. It's usually exactly 70% (when I'm browsing) unless it's struggling though.
