Since my MBA is a 2011, it is maxed at 4GB of RAM. I rarely run into issues since the SSD is so fast at swapping that it usually isn't an issue. For example, right now I am installing a VMWare image with Windows 8 while my Chrome based browser has 25 pages loaded, and performance is okay. It's one of the things I love about this little tool. But I'm curious... on Windows, I often killed services and software that loaded upon start that I did not need. On my MBA, is this also possible? Are there things I can stop from loading that I may not need? If so, where can I go for a reference on such things? Thanks!
