I'm not familiar with that exact laptop model, but personally, if it's an old and outdated laptop I wouldn't bother spending your money on upgrading it.

You could max out the memory to 256MB and install a wireless card, but that's about it.

And get a nice battery for it, the older batteries don't really work.
