Ah yes, you can write BIOS's but can't type a grammatically correct paragraph to save your life. That's some genius IQ working there. Also, here's a link that I had saved off from long ago. Take a look at the second chart, and note the source of the info used there (MS). It shows what most people I've talked to have known for quite some time. You'd have to be running with very little physical memory in a machine to notice even the slightest improvement in boot times with ReadyBoost. With anything over 1GB you aren't going to see much. That data comes from Vista, but I wouldn't expect to see much difference if any with Windows 7. http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2160&page=5 As stated above already, the whole point of having tons of physical memory in a machine is to use it, not let it just sit there looking pretty. Ok I need some coffee.
