    1. How do you use Activity monitor to detect memory leak on MBP?

    2. WHere do you get Iklear? Is there anyway to get it at a retail rather than ONline?

    look at processes memory footprint and see as it grows. Safari or other apps should be consuming large gobs of ram, and if they do w/o giving it back, then you have a memory leak. To be honest, most apps don't seem to suffer from it at least I haven't noticed it
    Apple.com? I got my last batch at the apple store, so I assume its available online there as well.

    Thanks. What happen if you use Google Chrome? Does it consume a lot of memory?


    2. Is it expensive at the apple store? How much did you buy it for?

    I don't use google chrome, I never cared for the tabs on the top type of UI so I cannot answer about its resource consumption.

    It wasn't overly expensive there but like anything else at the apple store you do pay a premium.

    I found some iklear over at amazon
