Re: [opensuse] Get an SSD just for swap?

Yes, by all means, get a small SSD and use it for Swap, but not only swap,
also for the main system, excluding /home.

That means I need a 64Gb SSD.

My current / is 46GB by df, but this is because of snapshots in btrfs
(which made the system fail in the middle of upgrade to 42.3 - luckily
I could recover by giving / some more space at the cost of /home - the
joys of LVM).

By du, / is about 18GB. So if I format the new / using ext4 and thus
have no snapshots. I need 32GB for / to be sure nothing will break, I
guess. And so, with swap, a 64GB SSD?

I could probably afford something like this...

It claims to have 400Mb/s read 300Mb/s write, compared to about 115
Mb/s for the existing HDD, but the latency is obviously much lower on
any SSD...
