Are you able to post a photo of your machine? I'm assuming you're talking about the pre-Dell laptop if it only has 1gb sticks.
If so then you can use DDR3 1067 SODIMM memory. I think the options at release were for up to 4gb total but maybe it can take up to 8gb but I couldn't say for sure.
Ebay would be your best best

This should work. I haven't upgraded one of these machines myself though. I think 4gb will be your limit.

EDIT: I've read that a BIOS update (B13) added support for 8gb memory. I have no idea where you'd find BIOS' for these machines though, and I think it can take 1333Mhz

This machine actually looks to be the OCZ Whitebook so if you search for this then you may find additional information
