Have a 3yr Sony FS415M pentium m laptop that has served me very well running Windows XP
Anyone have any ideas if upgrading from current 1gb ram to 2gb will have any significant improvement on performance? Currently performs ok but occasionally hangs when on the internet or running multiple tasks. Crucial.com shows 2gb upgrade for £24 so wondered if anyone considers it a worthwhile upgrade since plan to keep laptop for a couple more years (hate Vista laptops).

You would only notice a performance improvement when running multiple tasks. 1 GB is certainly more than sufficient for running a browser so you should look elsewhere for why this results in the occasional hanging.

Personally at only £24 I would upgrade.

Just upgraded a PC to 2gb from 1gb and noticed it was generally much quicker. It will also save wear on the harddrive.
