Adding memory will improve your HP Pavilion Elite Series m9100t's performance. Specifically, it will speed up opening new applications, running multiple applications at once, and switching between software applications (multi-tasking).
One task that additional memory speeds up is opening a new software application. Let's take this as an example. When you open a new application on your HP Pavilion Elite Series m9100t, your computer's CPU fetches the application from the hard drive and stores it in RAM memory. It stores it in RAM because RAM is very fast relative to the hard drive. When RAM gets full, and you open a new application then the CPU needs to kick out one of your open applications, put it back on the slow hard drive, fetch the new application from the hard drive, and place the new application in RAM. Basically, it swaps the applications.
