Default $900 Laptop - What should I get?

So I got a call from my VA voc rehad counselor and they're going to pay for a laptop and a printer for me. My total budget is $1000 for both. Here's what I was thinking:

And

Any tips or suggestions?

So I guess the VA has to go through a government contractor to order the laptop. They got me a HP WZ252UT. Think this will be good enough to run SC2 and most other apps?? Not an Intel guy so I'm not up to par with their products.

Intel® Core™ i5-450M Processor
4 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM
500 GB 7200 rpm 2.5-inch SATA II
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4350

Video card is a little concering, considering what I could have got for that amount of scrilla.

I don't think the HP will run sc2 very well:

The Acer would be a better choice.
