Prevent SSD wear by using a RAM disk for cache
Authored by: BadCo on Jan 04, '11 12:00:51PM

Great tip, I used to do this on Windows and it really speeded up my browser.

A question: as RAM prices continue to fall and Power Macs can support vast amounts of memory, would it not make sense to create say a 4-8 GB ramdisk and load more application files to it? If you have 16-32 GB of RAM, you can afford to dedicate a lot for this. And at current RAM prices, this is much cheaper than buying an SSD too.
