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.
