Too be honest, just getting more RAM will help the most. IF you want faster access times get a SSD soon. But ram should be #1

No problems. Put a SSD in if you want, but it's a netbook, not worth it. RAM is also alot easier to upgrade. Oh also, XP or vista?

I agree with the RAM being #1 priority. I replaced my 1Gb stick with a 2Gb in my ASUS eePC and noticed a world of diference.

1gb on windows 7? My windows 7 idles on my PC at about 1.2gb usage. 2gb will make that PUPPY FLY!

regarding the SSD - it depends. If what annoys you is waiting for the HDD to access info, then it will help. But remember that the CPU in the netbook is very slow by desktop standards - if you are CPU limited, switching in an SSD will be a costly waste of time as it will make no difference.

RAM will help more if you only have 1GB at the moment. But RAM and a 100GB SSD aren't the same price.

You could always get both. SSDs are ideal for netbooks. They use less power, and all of them come in 2.5". Not to mention the obvious speed benefits.
