More RAM is defeniltey needed. Hard drive is OK, as long as you arent storing too much on it.

Well for word processing and small Apps (iTunes, Ie ect) it will do fine. But if you want to run the latest games at high settings then you will need a desktop. otherwise the laptop will more than suffice
