    I noticed on (probably the same on others), that the memory usage shown in the Application Monitor totals about 550MB, and yet the free memory shown in About is only 1GB.

    Where is the other 450MB being used?

    Or, alternatively, is it just being reserved for future use by the OS and, if so, wouldn't this mean there should be few issues running BB10 on the PlayBook (it's idle memory usage appears the same)?

    The OS reserves some memory although it is not been used and that's you see the difference.

    Here are the latest ones (taken within a minute, so there should be no changes):

    Application Monitor Memory Usage-img_00000004.png
    Application Monitor Memory Usage-img_00000005.png

    These are all shown apps and the memory usage adds up to 660MB

    The calculated memory usage is 1151MB (total minus free).

    Again there is a large discrepancy so either the app manager is wrong, or the shown free memory is a huge underestimate (lots is being reserved)...

    It wont matter whats showing its all set to change based on what the system deems needs the resoruces.If you open up a game alot of numbers will change.Lookinng at numbers wont change anything only BB will be able to measure all this in the lab anyway.As long as Os dont crash and lock up im good.
