you know i've been watching my gadget that tells me the CPU usage (2 cores) and RAM usage at all times ... funny why the RAM NEVER goes above a certain number - say 54% on mine (even when i open about 25 windows, rip off my dvdcam, listen to mp3 and watch something ... i believe it's vista's policy of keeping an open mind (err enough memory free - a magic number), so it just dumps things into the page file to keep 1gig free at all times ... but why!!!

when you have 512mb RAM total (like my bro's laptop at one stage which was pointlessly slow) you always have about 75% free - so it always have 128-ish mb RAM at all times - that i can understand ...

i have a feeling of being short changed?why not just use the other 40% of RAm? i paid for it so use it!
