I have read a lot of questions and answers about swap size but I am still quite confused. I have also read this article, which suggests swap size of half to two times of RAM, depending on low/high RAM and low/high disk space. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq
My question is: I am going to buy an SSD notebook with 4GB RAM, what will be the consequences if I set the swap size to be 1GB or even 512MB only? (And can I have no swap at all...?)
I do not use hibernation and I do not use software that consumes a lot of RAM. The usual activities are: listening to music, surf Internet, BT, browsing photos (not edit), converting video etc.
