Default Memory/ Motherboard Question

Im fairly new to the forums here, been browsing for a couple weeks i think now. I have worked on desktops periodically in the past and i am fairly confident in my computer building skills. However, when it comes to laptops i feel somewhat behind. I have just spent the last hour + searching the internet for the type of motherboard that my laptop has and how much ram it is able to handle. i searched on newegg for the type and speed and see that there are sticks of 2 gig available. I know that I have 2 gigs currently, but if i could bump up to 4 i think it would be worth the 100 dollars or so. I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop, with the AMD Turion Tl-60 processor. Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Max is 2 gig
HP Pavilion dv6000z specs and Laptop specifications - CNET Reviews

Don't need to spend that long researching. Easiest thing to do is to google your computer name and add 'specs' at the end. CNET usually has good reviews with most specifications like RAM and what not.

that wasnt exactly what i have, but thanks for the link, i was able to find most of the specs that i needed to know,

another question, would it be worth it to buy 2 one gig sticks, like - G.SKILL 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model F2-5300CL4S-1GBSA - Laptop Memory, and replacing the ones i have now??

my plan for this laptop is to do a complete hard drive wipe and install Ubuntu, the laptop will be my primary computer for probably another year or so and i want to get as much performance as i can get out of it for everyday tasks,

also, would upgrading the hard drive be worth the money, or even switching to a SSD??

thanks again,
