As i type this i currently have safari(2 Tabs), Msn messenger, and itunes open, and i only have 20mb free ram. My ram stats are as follows. wired=228mb, active=827, inactive=719 used= 1.74gb. page ins = 1000+ mb Page outs = 559mb Vm = 37GB My problem is I dont think that with these few programs open it should be using pretty much the full 2 gigs of memory. Is there some kind of problem with this data? Before when id have these programs open id have almsot a gig of free memory and now its almost nothing.
