Hi, I'm running an early 2011 MBP 17" and I'm having issues with something chomping through RAM like there's no tomorrow. I have 8GB of RAM in the machine and I run a crucial M4 256GB as my sole storage drive. The page-ins, page-outs and swap use are massive. This is a daily occurrence after an hour or two of running Win7 x64 in Parallels 7. I'm not running anything intensive in Windows, I have an MS Visio 2010 window open and I'm running a DotNetNuke Installation inside IE8 (unfortunately). I have 3 GB of RAM assigned to the VM. Other Applications I have open (on the Mac side) are Photoshop CS5 and Chrome. The photoshop files are mockups, but again, they're only around 7-8 megs, and there's generally only 2 at a time open. This can't be taking 8GB of RAM plus, can it? EDIT: The uploaded image shows the RAM availability after having closed the VM down.
