The 1Gb of ram will be a nice upgrade to your computer and it iwll alow you to be able to run more program with out lag or slowness your computer wil be faster and it will be more smooth so to speak i upgraded the ram on my latop frm 256mb-512mb-1GB, and my computer runs faster and i can run more program at once liek photoshop imageready firefox windows medi player and email
