I did the math. At the moment when I opened /proc/meminfo, taskmanager
reported 304 MB and systemload 312 MB. The proc file reported this:
MemTotal:       482784 kB
MemFree:         11408 kB
Buffers:          7932 kB
Cached:         151776 kB

(482784-7932-151776)/1024=315 MB

Unless I'm wrong in math, I would suspect systemload is more accurate.
