it has 4Gb RAM.
this happens when i start my mac and use about 3-4 apps, i-tunes,transmission and safari (most of the times).
can u answer me please, which files are stored in this free space since i'm not creating new files, i save them in an external hard drive, and i boot safari from my external hard drive...?
