I agree with wa1, for 250 bucks I would not go for it, you'd be paying a lot. What do you plan on doing with it, gaming? If so what games? Until recently most games didn't need much more than 1GB of memory, but now with high resolution games they use more. However as you are playing on a laptop (if you plan on gaming) then you will be fine with 1GB as you will not likely play @1080p maxed out.
