I was thinking about beefing up my laptop's RAM to 4GB as it doesn't run the best with Vista and 2GB, but sadly I am already maxed out at 2GB. I am thinking about upgrading the processor from a Celeron 540 (1.86 Ghz) to a C2D. I found one that matches the socket, but I have to do further research to see if the motherboard can support it.

i think 2GB is like a minimum for Vista. they say its 1GB for premium, but thats like pushing it.

I've never used Vista with less than 2GB, but I definitely wouldn't go less if you're a gamer.

Pfft, I know people who gave birth in less time it takes my laptop to boot LOL. I really don't think it's just the RAM. I think the Celeron isn't helping either. Like I said, I am considering doing more research on the motherboard and seeing if it will support a C2D. It's a socket 479 and I saw C2Ds with that socket. But I could get a decent laptop on ebay for not too much money. I don't game, so I really don't need a monster.

i would add another 2GB of ram, but mines cost $75 at micro center and $62 at newegg.
I dont really know if i should actually get another 2GB, i would be running Vista 32-bit so i wont really be using the full 4GB.
Im doing fine with 2GB, but i think i better get the other 2 before DDR3 becomes cheaper, and the DDR2 costs more like the DDR
