    How to check RAM usage?
    How do I check how much RAM my MBP is currently using and what is the max I should be running before I start shutting down applications.

    You can find Activity Monitor in Applications => Utilities.
    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!

    iStat is definitely recommended. I prefer the Menu edition to the Widget. Displays any piece of information about your computer you could want to know.
