The only difference it will make is that it will be faster. You can pretty much mix and match RAM till the cows come home as long as it's the right type for your system.

Simple answer: More RAM = Faster

BTW, punctuation is your friend.

I mentioned in your other thread that newegg.com had your memory for $40 for 1 gb .. here's that link again: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220111

If you have a little more than $40 ... why not chuck the 256mb and replace with 2 1gb sticks and call it good?
I can't imagine that your new (old) laptop can't handle 2gb of memory, though I can't prove it with any spec sheet I've seen on that particular model.

'Course, I didn't ask if that 256 mb can come out or if it's embedded.

That's not accurate. More like More RAM = Greater ability to multitask.

Well, I said "simple answer". You gave a technical answer. Nice effort though.

Technical or simple ... it needs to be correct ... yours wasn't. Might want to refrain from smart alec "nice effort though" remarks until you've been around a while. 1 day - 4 posts and you're showing thin skin to someone who corrects you?

well according to what I found your 256 mb is non-removable, so the free slot is only going to allow for 1 gb for a max of 1.25 gb memory. Still that will improve your performance upgrading with a 1gb stick.

Here again is the link for memory from newegg.com:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220111

Here's Dell's link for steps to install the memory:
http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...es.htm#1084976

In case you need to upgrade drivers, here is the link for Dell drivers for the Inspiron 1200 model pp10s:
