Default Vista w/ ReadyBoost

Does anyone know if this ReadyBoost technology actually works well? Supposedly it augments the amount of ram you have and increases the performance of the computer, but I'm a little skeptical. I'm looking into buying a notebook and it will have 2 gigs of RAM after I add a stick (Asus F3JP), so I'm wondering if it's worth my ~$40 to buy a 4gb stick of flash memory to keep in the card reader and use for ReadyBoost.

Default Re: Vista w/ ReadyBoost

IF you have more than 1GB of RAM this ReadyBoost is pretty much worthless. So if you are getting a notebook with 2GB you will be more than jsut fine. Plus Vista 32Bit cant handle anything over 4GB of RAM.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
