Word of warning you can only put 512 in each slot

Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
To see the memory installed in your computer click the Scan My System button below.

There would be good chance your computer wont fire up after its fitted, two slots of 512 should be plenty for a laptop, what are you using it for?

I guess want you really need is a dual core cpu with plenty of memory, im sure 1gig should see a big difference when running applications though.
