What's the actual problem?

Lightroom only uses as much memory as it needs. If there's not a problem to go along with that memory usage, there's not a problem. It's not like some applications that tear off a huge hunk and scream "MINE!" as soon as they start up.

Yup! You are lucky if LR only needs 400mbs of RAM. I have seen it use up to 4gb in my case at times. I am on a 2.7 quad i5 with 16gb of RAM.

Ah, this makes sense!! I didn't ask about the performance but he did indicate the program seemed to be running ok. Thanks everyone!
