    Thanks for the reply. i mainly will be using laptop for the internet and playing football manager. i just thought about upgrading the memory because some of the laptops i was looking at had either 6gb or 8gb ram but not the processor i wanted and plus its not too expensive for memory. seen a few on ebay but wanted to make sure about the right memory to get. you thinking would be safe just buying 2 4gb ram from ebay and then just putting that in or wait til i get the laptop and go in the link you sent me?
    Thanks for your help by the way

    If it's 32-bit, don't even bother. You'll only be able to use 3.5 and it will make no difference.

    If it's 64-bit, you may benefit from the added 1 GB, but it will make almost no difference unless you run virtual machines or something. You'll find that you use only around 2.5 GB's, if that, no matter how much you put in.

    (You should wait and go to etaf's link. Laptop RAM can be tricky and you don't want to waste your money.)
