Hmm, I would better spend these 16 Gb for the log storage, because
in my common setups with 8Gb/16Gb/32Gb memory at FreeBSD production
servers, swap is truly redundant.  But again, it depends on the
situation ;))

But if we're measuring 16 Gb of ATA/SATA disk in dollars, then yes,
you're right: it is $10 or about 4 or 5 Big Macs in my nearby
McDonalds.  I really don't know will it be 4 or 5: I don't like
these biggies and prefer cheeseburgers.  Now they are selling them
at 1.28 Gb per one cheeseburger, so this is a good deal ;))
