The only reason you would notice a difference is if you are using all 4gb currently, which I highly highly doubt you are. So, no, it's not likely that you will have any speed increase.

For general use, no you wont see an improvement. Now if you were running CAD programs and doing some video or picture editing, the extra memory would help.
