    An addition of RAM in a machine will be more beneficial than adding a USB.
    ReadyBoost cache is an additional but not an extension of the RAM of the machine.Regarding the size of that key, be aware that it must be between 256 MB and 32 GB transfer rate is 2.5 Mb / s or higher for random reads of 4 KB and 1.75 MB / s or higher for random writes 512 KB.Earnings at the launch of applications.
    Theoretically, this is when launching applications that ReadyBoost should reveal its interest

    ReadyBoost takes on its meaning thanks to access much faster flash memory, thus limiting access to the hard drive. Note a significant advantage on the autonomy of laptops who is lying in seeking more access to the USB drive (less energy) than hard drives.e.

    Nope if you have more memory than you need ReadyBoost will not do anything for you. You are better using the drive for backup or storage.

      I second Karl, ReadyBoost is only helpful when you don't have enough RAM memory.
