Default Vista Ram question

I have vista on my laptop. I had 512 and it was slow as hell, I added another 512 and it is a little better. I am planning on going with higher ram, so my question is should i go with 2x1 gig or is it worth going with 2x2 gig.

I'm running 4GB on my Vista desktop and when upgrading ram I always advise maxing out the slots so the next time you upgrade you don't have to replace what you already got. Make sense?

Makes sense, All i use it for is internet, so i just wasn't sure if it was worth the extra $50.

Not a bad deal. I just bid a 2 1 gigs on bay, so hopefully I win that.
