Adding RAM to inspiron i1520

How much trouble is it to add a RAM 2gb chip to this laptop? I have done this in desktop but have never opened up a laptop.

One module is easy to access;  the other one, less easy.  You should keep the memory in matched pairs in this system or you will lose the dual-channel configuration.

I have the same laptop and I upgraded to 4gb.  One module is on the bottom of the laptop and the other one requires the keyboard to be taken off.  I, like yourself had only replaced it in a desktop before as well but my RAM installation in my 1520 went smoothly.
