2GB ram to 4GB ram...is that really such a big upgrade? (For a laptop)

A 32-bit operating system can access 2^32 bits ~ 4 gigabytes of memory. It is a big upgrade.

Depends what you'll be using it for. Anything RAM intensive you should notice a difference. For general **** like internet of microsoft office type ****, shouldn't make a significant difference.

It depends on your processor. If you have a 10-year-old CPU, all the RAM in the world isn't going to help you out.

Since when can you upgrade a laptop ? You getting a new one, or inserting the chips straight in ?

Ram modules...there's a bay for them and there are easy to remove and snap in. There's no chips involved with them.

And, to be honest, 2GB to 4GB won't make a big difference if you're using a normal 32 bit system, as 4GB is over the maximum Windows XP can access. Still, it can save battery life. If you don't have a dual core system already, or planning to get one in a year or so, don't get the RAM and instead save up for one, since that'll make the biggest difference in performance.
