    A modern SSD can handle it just fine. Unless you habitually leave the drive 98% full, the machine will be obsolete before you wear any drive sectors out.

    Not if it's just cache usage, which it almost always is. Stuff cached in memory (which Windows tends to use most of the RAM for) is just data put into memory to speed the system up. It's not important, and just gets thrown away when something needs the memory; it isn't swapped back into the page file. It just means that whatever was cached needs to be pulled from the (slower) drive when it's needed, not the faster memory cache.

    Just ordered i5 with 8gb and 256gb from another country because the computer is not available at my country.

    My question is does XPS 13 windows have option to reinstall and change language? If not can I use product key to windows version which supports my language or do I need to go pirate?

    1. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/language-packs#lptabs=win8
    2. There is no product key; as long as you use the same version of Windows as shipped with your machine, you can install it in any of the available languages

    Despite your MacBook is about 4 years' old, but the CPU is not slow at all. i7-5600U is only 15% more powerful than i7-2620M, and can be slower when throttling (that is the trade off to be thin and light). Chrome and XPS 13 don't like each other (a lot of people here reported that), even simple web browsering may use a lot of CPU powerful and generate a lot of heat, which leads to the throttling. You may need to check the cpu usage and frequency during the web browsering. If CPU throttling is causing the slow down, you may need to take a look at chrome (probably check the plug-ins).
