I got my first mac last week! It's the 2ghz macbook pro. After playing around learning new things about the operating system, i found a widget called iStat nano - which shows me cpu, hard disk, ram usage etc.
What i noticed about the ram is that even though I didn't have any programs open and only a few widgets active, that the ram usage was maxed out with about 64mb left!
I'm just wondering what the benefits would be of buying a 1gb ram chip for my mac? On a pc obviously it makes your machine 'run faster' but since this is a completely different operating system which would no doubt use about a 1gb swap file on a 7200rpm hard drive - just how much of a difference would it make?
Lastly, on safari (and firefox) i'm noticing that whenever CSS Opacity is used on tables, that they slow down dramatically... when you try to scroll down a page, its very choppy...
here's some example code:
thanks in advance.
