RAM usage

Hi
I am using a Medion 8083, with which I am generally pleased. However it shipped with 512mb of RAM, but seemed only ever to have about 300-odd MB available at any time.
I upped this to 1Gb , but still only get about 650 MB of free Ram. All of this is with no programs running.
Is this normal with Win XP?

XP will use as much as it can but that seems high. click here and click here and have a read.

I think xp uses 128 plus if you have onboard graphics they take some.
