What tool are you using for the statistics?
Linux will try to use all memory available, where useful. Why have unused
RAM, when you could be caching, etc.?
I have installed a plasmoid that shows memory usage, distinguishing between
completely unused, used for cache, and used directly. Even with 4 GB of
RAM, it is almost always mostly cache.
In other words - you probably have 6+ GB of RAM for normal operations, even
with 7+GB being used.
