\015\012You might be confused as computers normally do not ship with 2 MB of memory these days. This model was introduced in 2005.
Yes, you can increase your RAM - and it's also quite cheap and easy.

You can find 4GB RAM kits on Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Store/Category.aspx?Category=17&name=Memory

They cost about $50 for the cheaper ones. You also have to make sure they'll fit your motherboard - if you have a relatively new computer (About 3 years or newer), you should be safe with picking DDR2 memory.

Also, depending on the processor and motherboard you have, you could pick different-speed RAM. It's not important if the speed doesn't match up exactly to your CPU, but if you know how to pick the right one it would maximize its efficiency.
