umm its not going to be able to do much except web surfing, considering that thing is even slower than a cheap netbook, but it'd work I guess. You could easily get something better for the price though.

Here's an awesome deal if you're OK with an off-lease one. (I hear theyre pretty good quality) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...4-_-tigeremail

well I'd seriously consider that HP. Even being an off lease its an awesome deal for a C2D. If not, shop around a bit, and subscribe to tigerdirect's newsletter. They keep sending out awesome laptop deals through email.

The Toshiba will be fine for pretty much any normal tasks. Much better than the first laptop, which was basically a netbook on steroids.
