I just purchased a brand new laptop with specs:
Intel core i7 processor
nvidia graphics card 2G dedicated
Windows 7 64-bit
However it seems like my ram usage is at about 1.5 to 1.8GB when I have nothing apparent running and at 2GB+ RAM when I have just a few applications like some tabs in google chrome running.
This is strange because I had a laptop before with a much less impressive spec that included a total RAM of 2GB, not a great graphics cards or processor and was a 32 bit Windows 7 edition. It always used about 1GB of RAM.
Is this normal or should I get a replacement because I still have some warranty time left. Also, as I've mentioned details about my two laptops - how much of a difference should I feel in terms of speed because at the moment I haven't felt too much but maybe that's because I was expecting a Ford to Ferrari type of transition
