I agree, what is the point of having more RAM if you are going to freak out when it is getting used. The whole point of more RAM is so more apps and services can be loaded into it so that when you want to use said apps and services they are ready to go. My laptop is running 8GB RAM DDR3 1333MHz and usually has about 2-2.5GB used. Never had any issues loading AutoCAD, Photoshop, Firefox, a few PDF's, Outlook, and a few others all at the same time yet.
