1GB wired memory used

Good night.


I have OS X 10.8 installed in a Sony VAIO VPCEH40EB, which has 4GB RAM memory.

It uses from 1GB up to 1.5GB just for wired memory. I think that's a bit too much, isn't it? If yes, can you think of a way to reduce it?


I'm attaching an image comparing the wired memory usage of this laptop and of my desktop, which also runs OS X 10.8, just after boot, before executing any application. Laptop's is 3x desktop's.


Apple support says "The amount of Wired memory depends on the applications you are using", but as I said, it's 1GB without running any application, and the difference to my desktop also prove otherwise (for a Hackintosh).
