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.

so readyboost doesn't add a kinda memory module to the system. I believe it does.

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.
