Laptop RAM upgrade worth it?

I just bought a HP Pavillion g7-2240us laptop for $350. My old one broke to the point it was not worth fixing and this was what I could afford and think it is a good deal to get me by for now.
From what I have been told it has two slots for RAM, one with 4gig and one with 2 gig. The advertising for this computer said that it was "not able to be upgraded". I believe this is incorrect and it can accept a maximum of 8 gigs of RAM. (if this is not correct please let me know).
I have had comments that changing it from 6-8 would not make much of a difference but I have always thought the more RAM the better and it is very inexpensive.
Is the 8 gig max correct and if so is the extra 2 gigs worth it as I believe or not?
Thanks for the advice
