    Will having insufficient memory for demanding programs wear out an SSD drive faster than normal? I notice there are a couple GB of page outs as i work and activity monitor shows the normal RAM memory all used up.

    I use Windows 7 with SolidWorks and MatLab in VM Fusion on my Air.

    Mac OS is made to work with virtual memory...it has nothing to do with running out of ram.

    buy a care plan if you are gonna worry. Most highly used electronics don't last 3 years anyways. Get it fixed at 2.9 years when it breaks :) Then go another few years
