Do I need more RAM?
Aug 25, 2012

IMac, purchased a couple of months ago with Mt. Lion update.

In Activity Monitor, I see that there is 3.15, out of 4, GB used. I have 9 tabs running, all messages boards, nothing insane. That's a crazy amount of usage for nothing, really.

So should I get more memory? I don't game or run heavy apps, just surf and e-mail.

I'm just wondering why this computer is such a memory sucker and if it would be advantageous to upgrade. That is, would pages load faster? It seems to be OK as it sits, but faster is always nice.
