Default Upgrade my laptop or find another?

Hello all.I have a Dell inspiron,8600,about 6 years old,it works OK but is running slow compared to everything else.Needs more memory for the media related tasks (no gaming) I guess.Task manager tells me the CPU is up near 99% a lot of the time. The battery is also shot and needs replacing.

The specs are: Intel(R) pentium(R) M processor 1.6
599 MHz 512 RAM
But at what point is it not cost effective to dump any money into this unit?

I'm up for,used,Ebay whatever.

p.s. : the McAfee protection really eats up a lot of space and really seems to bog it down.
