    4gb's of RAM and a better processor than what is currently in it of course. How do we know what is in it now? I'm guessing there is a T5450 in there currently. Why do you need to upgrade, is it slow? Maybe all you need to do is reinstall the O/S fresh? Is Vista on it? If so, 4gb's of RAM should help but I don't think you need to upgrade the CPU. Just look for DDR2 SODIMM's that are faster than you currently have.
