HI Andrew,

MacBook Air is really great if you have to use it on the go a lot as it weights basically nothing and having your system running of an SSD became a required feature in my opinion - I mean MacBook Pro still works pretty fast of an HDD, but Air is even better than that. I find that MacBook keyboards feel weird at first, but you really get used to them after a time.

Honestly, this is a very nice laptop. The only thing it could fall behind on is graphically intense tasks, even though Apple tries to play up the capabilities of the integrated GPUs, Intel HD Graphics were never really all that great. But then again things like rendering video is not the main purpose of this machine and it should be more than enough for other tasks.

I hope your purchase serves you well. One thing Apple always had is making their computers really pleasant to use.

Sysadmin Day 2018 is coming up on July 27th, and, going along with the recent premiere of the new hit movie The Incredibles 2, we want to share a light-hearted and comical explanation of what sysadmins are and why they are so incredible.

Moore’s law state that computing power will double their speed every 18 months or so. While many have predicted the law to end in the 1980’s, it has been going strong even today - but for how long? Moore's Law suggests exponential growth, and it is unlikely it will last forever.

Are you kidding?

The most important aspect of childhood is to play.

The future generation will have nothing in common with ours and you need to know how to play in order to be successful.

Modern OS from Windows 7 onwards will disable disk cache and you will not have performance gain on using a RAMDisk.

Besides, the wearing from disk read and write will not have a significant impact to your SSD.

https://www.howtogeek.com/256859/dont-waste-time-optimizing-your-ssd-windows-knows-what-its-doing/

I have changed the HDD to SSD for a number of desktop PC for more than 18 months and they are still running to top speed like Day 1.

Before I changed to SSD, I did use RAMDisk to make Windows 7 ran faster by moving all cached and temporary files to the RAMDisk and my experience shows that the article in the link above is correct.

Besides, unless you are staying with 32 bit MS Windows, you will not have spare RAM for RAMDisk and it is better to let the OS to handle memory management.

I found that on my Windows 10 64 bit machine with a 256gb boot SSD (1tb data drive HDD 7200rpm), RAMDisk made a huge difference.  I found the same on my brand new laptop (Lenovo Yoga) with SSD.  I even bought the software.
