Then i would go for 8GB of ram, since you're doing basic work with word and some tabs on internet, but I can suggest even an HDD 7200RPM or SSD if you have a budget, http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP---Compaq/hp-15-r132wm
Here are compatible parts.
But i can agree that even an SSD can help but only with boot time and opening stuff.
Download HDTunePro with free trial and run benchmark and post screenshot

After that I can say if the SSD or 7200RPM hdd is needed.

Are you using windows 64 bit? If you do then its 8GB of ram (single stick) best option cause windows eats up only 2GB if no background tasks are doing.
If for web browsing and such things.
And the problem might be that its 5400RPM drive but I've used similar laptop with same speed and i can say ram helps.
