okay for what? gaming? if so, no its not (sorry )

and why are you buying a pc from a company? you can build a pretty decent gaming pc for around 570 USD.

like for net surfing and email listening to music and stuff?

ya its pretty good, but if you plan on editing images, videos, i recommend you to get a pc that has a graphics card. the one you have is on board graphics, which slows down your system and cannot run graphically intensive stuff well.

Pretty much ditto to what the guys said above - I'd personally put a graphics card in, if only a mid-range one, but if you won't do anything other than Office work, internet and so forth I suppose it's not a necessity.

A larger Hard Drive might be useful if you plan to listen to music or watch movies but the CPU is reasonably powerful and 512MB of RAM should do you fine.
