Hi Bob,

I try to keep at least 10% of my hard drive free but even so, it's slower than it used to be and when I do exceed that amount it becomes even slower.

I've got the Activity Monitor App permanently on my menu bar. On finishing startup the Used Memory indicates approximately 600MB (of 2GB). Applications like Firefox, AutoCAD and VirtualBox by themselves usually boost that mark up to 1GB-1.2GB. I'm hoping increasing the memory to at least 4GB will help make my mac faster... or am I wrong? Is there anything else you recommend?

QUOTE Thanks
