Installing more memroy is about as good as it gets. There really isn't too much you can do with a laptop other than install more/faster memory and larger hard drives. They are fairly proprietary and built with mainly integrated components.

yea, you can't overclock a laptop, so adding more RAM is th ebest your gonna get. i would switch the processor with a faster one though, 1.86ghz is not too fast
