comment Why does Windows 7 use the page file when there's free physical RAM?
Darth Android, this is the clearest, most succinct explanation I have read explaining why a page file is highly recommended and why memory use in modern operating systems is so much more complicated than the Task Manager would have you believe. I wish more software developers understood these fundamentals, let alone average users.

comment Does Intel Smart Response provide any statistics on the cache usage?
What I would be looking to prove is that the SRT algorithm is in fact working well for my particular workload. Collecting real numbers around cache hit rates etc. makes for far better decision making than "I installed it and it seems to take 3 seconds now instead of 5", or "it feels faster now" guesstimates.
