Listen to MoM on this! A lot of people are getting false info from the crucial site.
ALWAYS go to your laptop manufacturer directly.

And realistically there is no performance to be gained over 4gb ram. Tasks that benefit from more ram generally can not be done on a constrained laptop. If it were an i7 desktop then going beyond 4gb would be more beneficial.
