yes it fine....i bought the 1501 and upgraded it myself...(more ram bigger HD ect....)

i use this dell just to brows the web and simple stuff.....

The AMD is fine if you only want to brows the web and do word and check email ect..

its ram that makes it go youve got 1gb so its all can allways upgrade it if you know how

£479 is a bit pricey...i only paid £400 for mine....but i spent more on upgrades (personally) it will be cheaper to upgrade youself, than to take the dell upgrades
