Should I upgrade my RAM for better speed?

  PC-NOOB 22:00 15 Jun 2017

I recently found a free 2007 Sony Vaio PCG-6N2L and have been using it with no intention of practicality however, I was curious if upgrading the RAM would be something to look into doing because it is currently unbelievably slow. I installed Linux Mint 18.1 Serena just to mess around with it and find out what is can handle, which is sadly not much but that was expected.

Old RAM tends to be expensive.

RAM rarely alters the speed but will affect, for example, the number of Tabs that you can have open

Forget it, it would be more costly than it would be worth.
