Solution? Add a super-fast hard drive to the expansion bay and set up a swapfile.
how do you use all of that? im sitting on 512 meg, and only use about half of it. and i run alot of crap too!
If you knew what I do for a living, and what my system is used for, you'd not ask that question.

Complicated 3D computer design work takes more resources than almost antyhing else. Techincially, this laptop isn't a laptop. It'* classified as a mobile workstation.

True, the biggest threat these days is spyware, adware, or malware. Antivirus are useless unless you have a firewall and adaware-type program.
