Please try your favorite monitor - something like Quick System Info Pro will do - and let's see if anything stands out at a zero-level check.

In QSIP, Processes tab, note some memory sizes of favorite apps run both ways (make sure Show Memory Usage is checked under Preferences from that tab/page).

QSIP also allows you to place a memory-used notification in your task bar and start that at boot-up - see Preferences from the main page, Task Killer Notification.

Check memory free after a reboot and some reasonable settling time - you decide, 10 minutes maybe - for both configurations.

Final point is anecdotal, but check that memory pull down while trying to run some things in the same way (not terribly important for a first look - refresh gmail, visit our home page and search for something in the Play Store for example).

That will tell us two things on a very rough sampling - individual app memory used in a few cases and free memory while running.
