With 4GB of ram, ReadyBoost really isn't going to make any difference. In fact, it may actually hurt your overall system performance. ReadyBoost is only designed to be used on systems with smaller (< 2GB) amounts of system RAM.

And even then it makes SFA difference IMHO.

The first word is "sweet" the last "all" and the middle one has four letters in it. ;)
