Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

Which Windows 7 do you use?
If you use Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate you can use 'XP mode' to install many older programs.

XP mode is simply VM - I run audio production software so I need direct access to audio (low latency drivers).

EDIT: I also need WASAPI (Vista and above)

I don't browse xxx sites or dodgy download sites.
I don't share files using pendrives.

my friends use antivirus software yet their computers get infected.

If you don't want to have memory problems, don't mix different memory types / sizes.
You'll need to do a Win 7 64 clean install.
I wouldn't waste much money on a laptop with DDR2 memory support. 6GB is going to be fine for his needs.

At least have another stick that have the same memory clock as the current one.

Windows 7 Professional

my laptop has DDR3 2+2 I was thinking about 2+4 (cheap).
my other systems:
Dell miniPC DDR2 2GB 800 + 1GB 667 (win7)
old Asus board DDR1 1GB 400 + 1GB 333 (xp/linux)
old AMD Sempron board it has 3 memory slots occupied by random ddr1 modules (not in use at the moment planned win98se)
Atom 330 board - this one has only 1 slot so no mixing (linux)

I've been building PCs from recycled parts since 2004. Never had any problems with mixed modules.
If it passes mem86+ it's fine.

Actually many Windows 7 laptops were sold with 2+1 configuration.
