Default upgrades for an old laptop

I just recieved a compaq presario 2500 for free. Are there any worthwhile hardware upgrades that are really cheap?

What are the current specifications? I think the maximum amount of RAM supported is 1gb.

I would put more RAM, but that is about it. A larger HDD maybe, but I would not spend over $100 on that laptop.
