    In the activity monitor I have 540MB active and 2.97GB free (which all makes sense) but what is 443MB of 'wired' and 68.99MB of 'inactive' memory?

    I suggest you read Mac OS X: Reading system memory usage in Activity Monitor for a full picture but the specific parts are.

    It is perfectly normal to have these numbers
