I've personally noticed a difference on my Alienware with it's 512MB DDR and my Desktop machine running 4GB of ram, Photoshop DEFINTLEY opens MUCH faster (CS3).
ReadyBoost, on the other hand, puts seeks to help out the slow hard drive by caching some data into USB 2.0 flash. By using a ReadyBoost-capable memory stick, you can take advantage of the near-instantaneous seek times on flash drives to get you your data quicker.
