Laptop Upgrade Question

Last response: in Laptops & Notebooks

My wife has been nagging me to "fix her computer." Basically, it is slow and I am looking for an easy way to upgrade some components to speed it up for her. She just does generally web browsing, nothing intensive at all. The only change I have made to it from the original specs is an upgrade to Windows 7. Please take a look and let me know I should upgrade, and if it is even worth while. Thanks.

Get 2GB RAM, it will make a huge difference for basic stuff like internet and such.

Yes, they say PC2-5300 and your wife's takes PC2-4200, but they will work anyway.
