With regards to the speed issue.
I tried SoaS on a USB2.0 (but not high-speed) memory-stick, performance was
hideous on a macbook.
Using a USB2.0 high-speed memory-stick, performance is great on an eeepc,
which has 1G Ram. I know its not small, but its all I have to compare with
So from what I have experienced the USB port would be the first target. I'll
hopefully get a chance to test on low-RAM school computers tomorrow.
