windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Should I Add Memory

I have a laptop running Windows 7 64bit with an Intel Core i7 CPU Q740 @ 1.73Ghz processor, I have recently created several virtual machines and created a Windows Server network for a college class. I have two servers and one client running Windows 7 in the virtual environment running simultaneously. When all 3 VMs are running they along with my host machine run extremely slow. I was thinking about adding a 4GB ram chip to boost the total memory on the host machine to 6GB. However I have read many times that most machines can only use 4GB of memory and that there is no point in adding more. Do you think it would help the performance if I added the extra memory or would it be a waste of time. Thanks.
