comment Installing extra memory seems to make Windows more sluggish
Mmm, that's interesting about the maximum memory. Thanks for pointing that out. I will uninstall the original 4GB memory and see if that helps, although Windows does recognize the 12GB of RAM correctly. Let me see if downgrading to 8GB will make it better.

Windows is reporting 12GB (I added the detail to my question as per SE guidelines).

Sounds like a reasonable theory, and I will accept if no-one else blows it out the water ;-) To answer your question, it does not seem to change depending on the heat of the laptop. In fact, I cannot say that it has become worse, it just appeared and seems quite consistent. I was wondering: could this have been caused by overheating in the first place?

comment Do ISPs charge for network header bytes as part of data usage?
I guess measurement of data depends on which level of the OSI model you talk about. As a consumer who knows nothing about networking, you look at the amount of data you download or upload. I think Daniel's answer puts it a bit more in perspective (~1%), but the truth is, Khaled makes the best point in his answer: One would have to ask the ISP whether or not they actually do take that into account.
