Session in memory table

Hi everybody!
Actually I store session data in a InnoDB table. I wonder if I could gain performance if I used a MEMORY table instead. I think that on one hand I could save a lot of disk I/O, but on the other hand, as InnoDB tables have row-level locks whilst MEMORY tables have table-level lock , probably updating/deleting operations would be slower.
Is there anybody who has experienced saving session data in MEMORY tables? Any feedback about it?

Thanks in advance.
