Why to Do It:

No matter how much RAM you have, it is not enough. It may seem like enough now, but some day soon, it will not be. As memory becomes cheaper, computers include more and more memory in their standard configurations. But as soon as software developers expect users to have more RAM in their machines, they develop software that requires the additional RAM. The original Apple II computers came standard with as little as 4K of RAM. Today, most Macintoshes come standard with anywhere form 32MB to 128MB of RAM standard. Users often upgrade their Macs to even higher limits. Programs are already on the market that make effective use of these mega-amounts of RAM. This Fix-It can help you deal with the inevitable memory-related problems you will face, especially when you are not fortunate enough to have as much memory as you might like.

Almost all of your Macintosh's memory is divided into two components: the system heap and the application heap. The system heap contains the memory needed for the System file as well as for most extensions and control panels. The application heap contains the memory needed by applications and their documents.
