More is always better...if you have cleaned out and stopped everything that is usless and system bogging...so before you send that money..spent the time looking at what is running in the background and shut it down if you know how. Then see how it is working without he upgraded ram install

...but then again...more is always better in my opinion...it can't hurt.

Good time for a cleanup while apart, to include heatsink & CPU cleaning & repasting with a low cost, yet effective Arctic Silver 5 (AC5) or Arctic MX-4, there's many YouTube videos to show the proper way. 


May as well upgrade the RAM to the max, be it 8 or 16GB (it's capacity) for Windows 64 bit, which will future proof the system for years to come, or you decide to retire the computer. Save the current 4GB module if purchasing a set, should you sell the notebook leave only that one installed & resell what you purchase. Being that RAM costs more today, and will increase for DDR3 once DDR4 becomes the norm for most, the resale value will be much more in 4-5 years than today & will net more selling separately. That way, you lose nothing, nor will the one who purchases the RAM later, although you may have to submit an RMA for replacements, being the first owner, can charge for this, as shipping isn't free anyway, at least not back to Crucial.  


Think of now and the future & will come out a winner. :)
