Adding more won't make much of a difference and would be a waste.
Agreed. I tried to make it simple by saying that if there is a lot of "green", everything is OK. This assumes that you've rebooted your machine since you fired up all of your programs to assess your usage. Inactive memory is memory that had been allocated previously, but would be made available if necessary. After a reboot, there should be little or no memory tagged "inactive".

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
