I have a Samsung Notebook NP300E5C (Windows that contains an i3-3110M CPU and 4GB RAM. Curious as to whether I should upgrade to 8GB RAM or not, I opened my Task Manager and noted that I only ever use 2-2.5GB, leaving 1-1.7 GB RAM available at all times. This is during the most demanding work I do on my computer (Music streaming, multiple Google Docs tabs open, an additional tab or two browsing the web). Considering the fact that I don't ever technically use all of the 4GB of RAM, is it pointless for me to upgrade to 8GB? Would that actually make my computer any faster during operation? Logic is telling me no, however I am relatively new to the computer world and I don't 100% understand how RAM operates.
Also, if upgrading my RAM turns out unreasonable, what would be my best bet to improve my computer's speeds?
Thank you so much in advance.
