Worth upgrading Dell Dimension 2400?

Brought home a Dell Dimension 2400 that we were using at the office (purchased as a refurb from Dell in July 2007). Upgraded our computers at the office, so took this one home thinking I could use it to work from home. Most of our work is done online. Had my computer guy clean it up before I took it home.
Now that I've had it at home for a week or so, I've noticed how slow it runs. It has the original processor (2.4 gzh) and 1.5GB RAM. I reinstalled Windows XP, downloaded all updates, cleaned and defragged the hard drive, cleaned and defragged the registry, and still it runs slow.
Is it worth upgrading the processor and going to 2GB RAM, or should I just bite the bullet and get a new computer?
