There's a good explanation of the advantages and disadvantages of both here:-

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_mem_cache.html
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/caching.html#inmemory

Basically it says you're probably better off using mod_disk_cache and
letting your OS handle the in-memory caching unless you're using
Apache as a proxy.
