I purchased a new M1 Mac (8gb ram) in Febuary, and since then have had a problem with lagging due to high memory usage. Almost always half or more 4+gb is allocated to
The problem is exacerbated any time I plug in OR unplug my external monitor.
I've read this thread, which indicated that this was a bug back in OS X 10.x
Should I be worried about this specific computer being a lemon, or is this an OS X bug? It's quite annoying because it makes my computer essentially unusable for 3+ minutes every time I switch what display I am using.
