What size does a SWAP need at a modern 500 GB SSD at a 32 bit laptop with 4 GB RAM?

Like another person has said....
If you have a 500GB disk, which comes down to ~480 or so, then 4GB is
going to be 1/120th. It is not like you are going to suffer for it if
you do have one of that size.
I would always pick one the same size as your memory.
And, even though 64-bit may see perhaps a 33% growth in memory
consumption, that means 4 GB would turn into ~5.33 GB, and 4 GB would be
the equivalent of 3GB the other way around. If you consider 5.33 GB good
enough for a 64-bit system, many people these days, don't.
Don't forget, whatever is in swap is not in your RAM, and whatever is
not in your RAM, leaves buffers for improved IO performance.
You may even increase the aggressiveness of SWAP if you'd like :p.
(/proc/sys/vm/swappiness) to a value of around 90 (would have to redo
that every boot).
Especially since, on an SSD, you will hardly notice?
Also, that 3.9GB process space PER PROCESS that the other person
mentions, who cares? If anything, that's a good limit on a runaway
system, in case something goes haywire.
You won't usually find anything that needs to use >4GB per process
anyway, I believe. But regardless.
