Default Should I upgrade or Just buy a new one?

Heya,guys.I'm considering of buying a new laptop
This one:New Inspiron 15R SE
or should I just upgrade the one I have?
It's an Aspire 4530(it's quite old,IMO)
It has an AMD turion X2 dual-core mobile RM-70
Nvidia GeForce 9100M G
2GB RAM
250GB HDD(100&150)
Been through some repairing
Hypothetically,if I want to upgrade my laptop to the same specs the $800 New Inspiron 15R SE has.How much would it cost?Also,should I do it?Will there be problems if in the long term?
And how much would I get from selling my laptop?(not expecting much,here)
So,the bottom-line is this.Is it easier to buy the $800 laptop or to upgrade my own?(I said easier not cheaper)
If you would be so kind to answer my question,please.

You can't upgrade that laptop and it would be much better and easier to simply buy the new one.

Yeah..I kinda realize that upgrading a laptop isn't a convenient thing,especially for me.
But,hey.I appreciate the help.

Please don't but a Dell, especially this one, and especially though Dell's own website. They charge 100-200 dollars more than the laptop's specs are worth. For 800 dollars, you can get a waaaay better Asus laptop, or even a Lenovo (for the business kind, not so much games). If you want to game, go with Asus, or MSI. Just shop around NewEgg and find if there is a lower price on Amazon or somewhere else. You will save money this way, or just get a way better laptop.
