ive recently purchased a macbook pro, but for some reason every now and again i get really bad slowdown, looking at istat pro i sometimes have as little as 10mb of free ram, but i have only safari and itunes open!

is this a major problem and are there any fixes?

thanks for any help

Take a snapshot (shift-command-4) of the activity monitor(applications-utilities-activity monitor) so people can see whats going on.
