You can run the 4200s in a distributed environment with R80.x without a RAM upgrade.
Even if you did upgrade the RAM (which I believe is technically possible), I wouldn’t recommend R80.x standalone on a 4200.
I would be looking at upgrading the appliances to something newer/more powerful.

distributed setup is the way to go. Much more flexible and higher performance.

Looks like the 4200 has an Atom D525 processor. Intel's Ark says that processor's memory controller supports 4 GB of RAM. A bunch of people have confirmed it works with 8 GB, but you have to be careful about the chip capacity. 4 GB sticks made up of 16 chips at 256 MB each apparently work, but 4 GB sticks made up of eight 512 MB chips apparently don't.

Distributed is definitely the way to go if you can. R80+ management is heavily processor-bound. Management on a 4200 will not perform well due to having only two cores.
