It means 2 sticks of 512M

For laptops this can be trouble as Vista's happy zone is 2GB and laptops usually have at most 2 slots. You have to remove a stick to install your 1GB stick.

If you can customize this and get a single 1GB stick you can save yourself the trouble of selling off your old stick and maybe both by a little planning ahead of time.
