Ubuntu 13.04 shows 3.7GB of RAM out of 4GB

I have HP EliteBook 8440p and I am using Ubunto 13.04 64bit OS. I have 4GB of RAM installed in it but the details shows only 3.7GB of RAM is using. Is there any way to make it all the available 4GB of RAM?

That can eat about 384MB of RAM so nothing seems missing. While I applaud learning about PCs in general I don't suggest you change a thing.
