Wont make much difference... probably cant upgrade because system is only using 32bit OS not a 64bit OS

umm it says..Genuine Windows® 7 Home Basic 64bit (English) ... the inspiron 15 has 4gb ram wid all the other specifications the same... but its more expensive.. and i dont want a 15.6 inch screen... 14 inch is good for me!!
