DJL,

This is RAM used out of RAM available.

Presently 1.85 GB RAM with 2.15 GB free out of 4 GB total.

Got up to 2.1 GB a short while ago. Just after coming out of CSS Source.

Seems like vista is guessing what programmes I want to use and pre loading some stuff. Thats why I will be interested to see how the laptop gets on with 2 GB of RAM and the way it allocates resources. Won't have the laptop out for a few days though.

Also big PC has 64 bit Vista. Laptop has 32 bit Vista. I wonder if that makes a difference.

Know something I don't ?

Have alook on the Performance tab of task manager and post the 3 physical memory figures.

I'd be surprised if you have any 'free' memory. I'm running Vista x64 with 4GB also, currently I have 0MB free and 1.6GB cached. SuperFetch will fill all the RAM it can with data it thinks you will use - it learns which applications you use frequently and when you use them. If you open Outlook at 9am every morning Windows will try and make sure its in RAM before you need it.

It makes making assumpsions about performance difficult.

If you have no free or cached RAM then your running at the limit and could probably benifit from more RAM.

According to task manager I have 47 MB free with 2734 MB cached.

I tried 8 GB but couldn't get matching 6400 RAM at the time and it caused a few problems. 6400 with 5400 RAM. So I sent 4 GB back for a refund.
It is my intention to go to 8 GB again in the future but I'll wait till the rush for 6400 is over and prices drop a little. Also just done this little upgrade so gotta wait a few months until its time to invest again.
