10.6: Completely Disable Virtual Memory in Snow Leopard
Authored by: lsequeir on Jun 08, '11 07:58:42AM

I had never considered that this might be possible.

Using Windows 7 under Parallels with only 4GB of real memory was painfully slow in my MacBook Pro - but it ceased to be a problem whem I maxed out the ram at 8GB. Adding RAM is in my mind be the safest way to counter the slowness of swapping virtual memory around; but one of these days, when I feel bold, I may just try and see how much faster my mac will be with virtual memory turned off.
