    2.7 GHz rMBP, is this temp normal? Seems awfully hot.

    And people think I'm crazy when I advise folks that 8 Gigs of RAM isn't going to be enough in 3-4 years. :rolleyes:

    He's running VMs, of course it's eating memory. 8GB is more than enough unless you're doing virtualization. It's only got 6GB wired anyway.

    Why is Chrome using over 1 GB of memory? Also, there's a flash player plugin running. That might be the issue.

    Regards

    Chrome keeps visited pages in cached memory, it'll do that with a lot of tabs and time open. Really not a big deal.

    I've got 16 GB RAM and assigned 4 GB to the virtual machine I think. And yes Chrome doesnt seem very efficient. The high temps are just sort of annoying I suppose.
