Default Is this laptop worth it?

Yo, Memory Express, a pretty dependable store for computers has just got a laptop from Lenovo. It costs $600 CAD (Canadian Dollars) and I wana know if its worth it. The specificatios are in the following link: http://www.memoryexpress.com/index.p...ctID=8444&SID=

EDIT: Oh and I need a laptop for a day to day basis use. Like MSN, d/ling and watching movies, getting music onto my iPod. Perhaps some minor gaming, with low graphic settings.

I just want something silent, to sit in my room at night, and watch a movie or something without anyone knowing. I like to be silent...
