    Clearning up MBA memory
    Hi all,

    Whats the best way or programme to use so I can free up some memory?

    Preferably something easy and clear to use as I am a complete beginner to my MBA.

    Which version of OS X are you using? And what MacBook Air do you have; year and model? A quick answer is to allow the operating system to handle the memory. Since you can not add memory to a MacBook Air, it's best to let OS X take care of the memory for you. Also, if you haven't already done so, upgrade to Mavericks as it does a much better job of handling memory than previous versions of OS X.

    Or do you mean free up some hard drive space which folk often miscall 'memory'?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
