Memory usage 650mb - 41% - surely 600mb is 10% of 6gb

MY asus laptap, since new has always seemed to get hot and use the a lot, even when not using it much. I don't use it that heavily, a few browser tabs, and software like aptana or dreamweaver mostly.

However, I just noticed the 'users' tab in task manager shows the total memory usage -currently around 650mb - and it's saying this is 41%. My computer has 6gb of ram. 600mb would be 10% of that. So where is all the ram going? And can this explain why the fans always running?
