Default Maxing out ram

I have a Sony Vaio RB53 (I know, it sucks)...anyways the package told me I can max out at 2 gigs. But all the system checker thingies tell me I can max out at 4 gigs.

I heard somewhere that Home and Professional have different compatibilities for ram....where home can handle 2 and prof. can handle 4.

That true?

There isn't really any performance gain after 2 GB anyway, unless you're using HUUUUGE performance hogging programs.

You won't need more than 2GB.
