  1. WOW there's a run on ReadyBoost questions. Short answer, if you have 4GB RAM then there's no benefit. If you have an SSD then you can offload a lot of read/writes to the 'ReadyBoost Approved' USB; saves wear and tear on the SSD. Using any old USB will slow you down.
  2. so readyboost doesn't add a kinda memory module to the system. I believe it does.
  3. It's more less useless if there's 2GB, and totally useless with 4GB. It's good if you have 512MB or 1GB of physical RAM.

  4. No, ReadyBoost doesn't add anything to the system. It simply uses a USB stick to cache frequently-used programs so they load quicker. Once they are loaded, the programs don't perform any faster.

    If you have 4GB of RAM and a decently fast hard drive, ReadyBoost does nothing for you.
