Re: Do I need more RAM?

Respectfully beg to differ here. Have plenty of personal experience with Safari and poor memory management, which is bad enough to make a noticeable difference if you use multiple tabs and have 4 gigs of RAM. Using a utility like iStat you can clearly see what's happening. There's much warranted public outcry about Safari's poor handling of memory and it does matter which browser you use in that regard.

No, if all you do is a bit of mild web browsing etc then 4G is fine.

And it won't matter which browser you use either. Different browsers will manage their memory in different ways so don't really listen to those that say switching browser is better for usage of RAM.
