mkerton is on a distinguished road
Mac Specs: not yet decided

I'm a bit of a newbie and would really appreciate some guidance, Is there a way to run Snow Leopard in RAM? are there any 'command-line' switches as with M$ Win? I want to avoid pagefiles altogether as my HD is an SSD and I want to avoid fragmentation. I got 8g RAM so hope that will be ample.

I did take quite a long look at threads but can't find any discussion, so starting a new one, please accept my apologies if the topic has already been covered.

Thanks in advance of considered reply.

QUOTE Thanks
