I found this advice over at the HP Mini 1000 forum, and think it is a promising modification for any netbook with 2 GB of RAM:
“If you have 2GB of RAM, you could follow this tutorial and install a Ram disk:

Then point your Internet Cache to store on the ram disk, and see if it makes an improvement.
I definitely think moving the cache to the RAM disk makes a difference. I’ve also moved the Windows temp and tmp directories, which helps with installs and file transfers.”
Has anyone tried this with an NC10 yet? The HP has terrible HD and SSD options, making it a necessity, but it strikes me that using RAM could speed up the browser and maybe Windows in general. All comments appreciated. Thanks.
My blue NC10 should arrive next week!
for a while it has been common in high end gaming rigs to have a big ram disk dedicated to windows.
this is why there has been such a rush of ssd’d to the market. there is new demand for the faster ss technology because of the benefits of speed and lower power consumption.
a ram disk is in essence the poor man’s ssd, but still a very good means to the end.
