Video Memory

How much of a improvemnet would 4 mb of video be over 2 mb ?

If it is an improvement, do think its worth paying additional $150.00 ?

Is video ram used for games/movies only?

This is a Satelite notebook,

Well it would be twice as much ram meaning more performace, $250 is a lot for 2MB more, you can pick up a 4MB video card for around $25 to $50 new, for $250 you should be able to pick up a very good video card with all the bells and whistles with at least 32MB.
If you use any high graphic apps then you could use the most memory you can afford, but for normal use then 2MB may be just fine.

Please do not use the edit question option.

Now my first comment looks stupid since you changed the question after I posted the comment.

If you have a comment then please post it inline with the comments as a comment, this keeps the question and posted comments making sense to someone reading the questions and comments for the first time.

The correct answer is yes the extra video memory is worth the extra $150 since this is not something you can easily upgrade in the future, unless you are sure you don't need the extra memory now or in the future then you should get as much as you can afford.

Notebook computers are not cheap tp upgrade at a later time as it would be with a desktop computer.
