Next time, just copy and paste the text output. Easier than going to a link
has an image.

Memory does not seem to be the issue here.

What you are actually using is ~ 2.4GB, and Buffers/Cache has 1.2GB, and

But there is some swap usage. Hard to tell if that was a while back, or when
you were using those apps.

Probably what is happening is that the laptop is swapping too early.

Try doing:

sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=1

And if it solves the problem, then add it to /etc/sysctl.conf
