Thanks in advance for any help...


My Mac is struggling with the Memory. I recently upgraded to 4GB but the iMac is still incredibly slow.


For Example, if I run iPhoto to import some images it seems to consume all free memory. I am monitoring the memory with Activity Monitor.


With iPhoto running:


Free: 55MB

Wired: 436MB

Active: 1.88GB

Inactive: 1.64GB


When I run activity monitor it says the following when all aplications are shut down apart from Safari...


Free: 135MB

Wired: 505MB

Active: 1.74GB

Inactive: 1.62GB


Any ideas?


Doesn't seem right to me and it is running very slow.
