$50 upgrades to a Dell XPS M1210 laptop

I've got an old, 12" Dell laptop that I like to use when portability is my primary computing concern.  It's gotten pretty old, though, and the battery life pretty much sucked, providing less than an hour of use on a full charge.  I went looking for a replacement battery, and found that I could also triple the amount of RAM for only a few dollars more.  Together, these improvements should extend the life of this reliable little machine.
