Hi - I was cking for something else and noticed that the pagefile is 4,237,520 KB. It far exceeds anything else in the line up. So, of course, that peaked my curiosity as to what the number should look like.

This 6 mo old Dell-Vista Home 64 bit 4GB doesn't deliver in speed or other functionality as I had hoped it would. Basically, it seems to putt along just like the old Dell XP2 256 did.

By default in Vista the page file is akin to or slightly above the amount of memory in the computer. Typically a computer with 4Gb will initially have a 4Gb swap file which grows or shrinks depending on system usage.
