As for the fan thing, I'm not too sure. As for ReadyBoost, if you're using it on a machine with REALLY low resources (ie 512mb RAM), it won't be very noticeable. On a system with a fast HDD, a good amount of RAM, and large page files, it won't make a big difference. On the HP you have, it won't make a big difference. On that Dell though, it MIGHT. I know ReadyBoost isn't available on XP, but there are other ways to do it, such as this:
I tried to find a good video/walk through and it was pretty impossible. This one seems pretty good though. Remember, it won't help much, but it's a start if you're stuck with the 1gb RAM in that Dell. This won't help your HP, nor will ReadyBoost.
