    I have 4 tabs open in Safari, each one has a Youtube video loading in HD and its really loading slowly, taking forever. Is this normal?

    its a MacBook 2.4GHz Unibody that I just got a few weeks ago.

    just checked iStat memory shows wired 173mb active 1.04gb inactive 292mb free 330mb.

    Yes. Your internet connection is being split four ways, so it will take four times as long to load the videos. Open one at a time and you shouldn't have trouble. YouTube also allows you to create playlists by clicking on the green + icons on video thumbnails, which will allow you to queue other videos to play when the current one is finished.
