Good news that the two notebooks have the required specs for them to upgrade to W7/8.
If you tell us the brand and model name or number of the two notebooks, any upgrades that they may have had (additional Ram added for example) and what the main use of the notebooks is we will then be able to give you a more accurate answer to your question.
Will I save a lot of money or best to get a refurbished one (2) off ebay.
You are welcome btw

Either upgrade the RAM to 2GB or more or look at new/refurb laptops.
Edit: You will also need two copies of Windows 7/8 as you will need two installation keys.

To confirm both of the above, use the Crucial system scanner tool to find the best recommended Ram for your system/s, no need to purchase from there, write down the details and shop around for the best deal/s, let us know what is suggested and we can also look for you.
In addition to the maximum amount of Ram that a 32-bit OS will utilize, I would also check that the CPU data width on the Dell D630 is 64-bit before upgrading to 8GB of Ram and purchasing 64-bit OS, you can use the Intel® Processor Identification Utility to check this, details here
NB: Also keep in mind that you may have other 32-bit software installed on both notebook hard drives that will not run on a 64-bit OS.
