One thing to consider is that, so long as the laptop's motherboard is capable of taking more, you might buy the minimum that you can and then buy more separately. This would most likely save you an awful lot of money. You'd have to either pop open your lappy yourself or have the new RAM installed by someone else, though. It'd likely be worth it.
