mibolsa,
 
SWAP is not quite the same thing as RAM although they do essentially the same thing from a higher level looking down, but swap is far slower and implemented with a storage device such as a hard drive or a solid state drive instead of memory. So this will help in some situations where the 2gb in my Chromebook is just not enough but not as quick as a physical ram module which is what was asked in this question.
 
Not trying to respond rudely just wanted to make the distinction for any future readers. Your answer was helpful just not 100% the correct answer for this problem, but is a solution. However swap on an ssd is ill advised due to r/w count. So I would not do this.
