Forwarding Address: OS X

Sunday, June 23, 2002

I broke down last night and ordered the new iBook 700 MHz with a 40GB drive. I want to wring every last iota of performance out of the machine that I can, so I'm thinking about creating a dedicated swap partition for the box when I set it up. It looks like this was a good idea about a year ago for the performance-hungry and the cash-strapped, but is that still true today? Will it be true under Jaguar (OS 10.2)? If I've got 640MB of physical RAM, how big should my swap-partition be? Your feedback is appreciated. Discuss
