Thank you all for this info!! It's very helpful.
I will return to the IT people and clarify this. They gave me the impression 
that no laptop could handle more than 3GB.
I'm really much more efficient with a laptop as I'm also my kids "chauffeur" 
so, I'm always on the move and would like/need to have the most souped up 
gadget I can, while still in the company's budget.

Fred's correct, but I did notice that things changed slightly with W7. W7 32 
seems to be able to address about 3.6 or so of RAM -- I'd have to check to get 
an exact figure, but it was a nicely larger chunk on my 4G system.

But it should also be noted that only 3GB of memory can be accessed directly if 
you are running a 32-bit version of Windows. It is pointless to have more than 
3GB of RAM (even if your system can physically and electrically accommodate it) 
unless you are running a 64-bit Windows version. But going from 2GB to 3GB can 
make a significant difference in performance.
