    I'm going to get my EeePC 1005HA later today. I ordered it with a 2gig ram stick to replace the 1gig standard. I'm pretty sure that extra memory doesnt help netbooks very much as they are mostly limited by the CPU. However, I was considering getting a 2gig SDHC card to use for readyboost...Is there any considerable gain from doing this? Would I be better off trying to overclock the CPU? I've heard the atom proc. on the 1005HA can be OC'ed with stock cooling and voltage up to 2.0ghz from the stock 1.6, at the expense of battery life and heat of course. Any thoughts on this?

    READYBOOST was a great concept, but highly faulty under Vista.

    It does work GREAT with Windows 7.

    If you are going to use it, a READYBOOST-capable device must be used, or else RB won't use it.

    The important thing is that the RB resides in a USB port, and if your motherboard is touchy about a USB device waking it up from sleep, it has a tendency to give you a blue screen.
