Default Regarding Laptop Memory...

Would 2 gb DDR3 1066 be sufficient for running Windows 7? Or would 3 gb, 4gb, or 1333 speed have a significant increase in performance? Worth the perhaps....slight decrease in cpu performance or increase in price.

It all depends on what your motherboard can take. Give us the make and model of your laptop.

Well i'm actually considering buying one.
It would mostly be for college and portable entertainment, and occasionally music production. Also, some gaming. But nothing too intensive or bulky as I have a desktop for that =p
I like this one so far.

but this is a possibility, and why i asked the RAM question

I've been using the benchmark statistics from notebookcheck.net (seems legit)
