For memory, you can get this only if you laptop can support this speed:

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 200-Pin DDR SO-DIMM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Notebook Memory

As far as batteries goes, I have no clue. I guess each laptop hae a proprietary battery you have to get from your manufacturer. Not sure.

Do a google for laptop batteries. You will find a lot of nice places to buy discounted batteries. To increase my battery life, I purchased a spare. It was over half less than what Dell wanted and has been working great.
