I have a Packard Bell laptop currently 1 GB RAM, runs Win XP, Intel Centrino processor. I use it for 80% word processing, 20% Internet and e-mail. Is it worth upgrade to 2 GB RAM?

For what you use it for I doubt if you would notice much difference.

Not really worth bothering. I had 1 gb of ram on my main p/c (running xp and opensuse). As ram is so chap I added another 2 gb. You can't really notice any difference with xp but opensuse is a touch faster but not worth the bother really.
