Default is this a good laptop/deal?

Currently I have a Compaq Presario 900. Now it runs really slow and stuff. Really laggy compared to my desktop (well duh)

But i found a deal on newegg - Recertified: HP Pavilion dv6809wm NoteBook AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60(2.00GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 3GB Memory 120GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 7150M
i think the only reason that it's cheap is because its recertified. but it looked like an excellent offer.

should i get this laptop?
would i be able to tell a huge difference?
side question: would this thing come with MS office?

AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz
Artic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro
2x 2GB Patriot DDR3 1333
eVGA GTX 460 768MB
500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM SATA
Cooler Master Silent Pro 600W
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

Yeah I saw that deal a few days ago, for the price, it's worth it. Beats out most/all the other laptops in that price range.
