Default laptop

Is that laptop going to be good enough for internet browsing, chatting software and some other programs that dont require much processing power.

Also do you think I should get another 256MB - 512MB of RAM.

Also what normal desktop processor does the 1.5GHz Intel® Celeron™ Mobile processor compare to.

It will do the browsing, chatting, and the like just fine.

I'd say a 1.5 Celeron-M would be about equal to a 2.0 Celeron for a desktop.

I would definately grab that other 256MB of RAM. you can never have too much RAM as far as Windows is concerned.

You'll be okay for basic stuff, just add another 256, or maybe another 512 if the price isn't too much more.

Yeah...like the other people who posted, that should be enough for standard web browsing, etc....Just up the RAM to 512MB and reconsider buying from Zip Zoom Fly...Me and my friends had a CRAPLOAD of problems with every order we placed with them over the last 4 years!

How old are you like 10? I didn't ask for your opinion on laptops so your post is pretty much spam. Also I already have a "proper pc" but want a laptop for when I am not home or just so I don't have to sit in my room when I want to use a computer.
