My main machine, a T61, has been stolen so I went back to good 'ole Ebay and bought a T400.
The machine has 2GB of memory and that is the first thing I want to upgrade, but I'm not sure if I want to go to 4GB or live on the edge and buy 8GB. I am by no means a power user, but I like to have a fast machine that will last for a few years (assuming THIS one doesn't get ripped off as well). What brand of RAM is recommended? The Lenovo memory is expensive, but if it's worth the money then so be it. However if I can save a few bucks without a quality drop off then all the better.
Additionally I am going to go to Windows 7, it has Vista Business (SP1) now. Is the full OS worth the extra money or will an upgrade be ok?
Any other thoughts anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, I didn't know any of that stuff with the OS was possible, crazy...
Regarding the RAM, I have to have a 64 bit OS to use more than 3GB, correct?
