On my activity monitor i was just looking at my Ram usage, which is fine, but then i saw the VM size and it was HUGE! Does this effect how fast my mac will run ?

Can you empty it, like you would empty a cache?

Also, whilst im here, can someone simply explain page ins and page outs please?

QUOTE Thanks
