RAM is easy to upgrade.  You you could easily add another gig to up it to 2 gigs which would give you some speed improvement.  (You'd have to check - You may need to replace the existing 1 gig stick with a 2 gig, or it may just have an empty slot under the back cover.)
You could swap the existing hard drive with a SSD (solid state drive) and this would make a decent difference to the speed it handles programs, but you wouldn't get the enormous difference you get when doing this with a desktop as the Atom chipset (if it's the same as my NC10, which I think it is) is limited to 60MHz transfers. For this reason, there's no point in buying a top-notch SSD. 
However, your netbook has a 250GB HDD and a SSD of this size is still pretty damn expensive.  My netbook isn't my main PC so I went for a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and am more selective on what I keep on the netbook, linking to a shared drive on my main machine when necessary.

I don't think so, you want a different machine altogether.
