How much time (money) do you spend waiting on installers to run, when
you force them to use 100x slower memory, a.k.a. swap? What about the
run time of your test application? Are you sure it never hits swap?

I obviously don't know which SFF box you have, but I just put a random
Shuttle model number into crucial.com and it told me a 1 GB upgrade (512
MB matched pair) is $50. You're not going to save an hour or two of
company time over the expected lifetime of these machines? Really?
