It's not a question of if there are any more memory slots - it is almost certain that it will only have 2 and therefore for your installed 4GB RAM you will have 2 x 2GB. What you really need to know is what is the maximum amount of RAM my laptop can take. I am unable to find this inf. for you at the moment but I am still looking.

Having looked at the Packard Bell website only the higher end models of the TS version appear to able to take a max. of 8GB Ram.

The laptop you intend to purchase - the PACKARD BELL TS11-HR-038UK comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. Only 64bit benefits from more than 4GB Ram so even if you were able to fit more it would a complete waste of money. The RAM fitted to your proposed buy is of the faster DDR3 so this will be ample for your needs.

//adz_w/// - I am only assuming it is 32bit - it says Windows 7 Home Premium only and normally it would say 64bit at the end of that. You could always check/verify that prior to your purchase just to make sure.
