    I noticed a speed increase when I upgraded my iMac ram form 2GB to 4GB but I am not sure about the Macbook you could try it!

    Best of Luck

    I asked this question on this forum and for what I use my MacBook for (basically same as you) there would not be a significant difference. So I'm holding off upgrading the ram until my MacBook is at least another year older.

    I would wait. The price of RAM is always coming down, and 2 GB is plenty for the vast majority of applications and web browsing. This time next year you will probably be able to buy a 2x2GB kit for 50-75% of what it costs now.
