Default Good Laptop? Specs vs Price..

model # DV9417CL

2048MB DDR2 System Memory
160 GB Hard Drive (SATA)
17" Widescreen
Vista Home Premium
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150

I think this is same thing, there more detail about it
HP Pavilion 17" dv9417cl Entertainment Laptop PC w/AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TK-53 Processor - Wal-Mart

Price is $948
I am buying from Sam's which have 6 month return policy. I will use it, in case I will decide to return Laptop and get something better.

What you think in general? Good Laptop?
Ok price (if comparing with Laptop specs) ?

Well the thing I like about 17" Laptops is that they have full keyboard.

And... I probably will use it mostly at home. But just something more poratrable.
Well maybe college too. But I am not sure about that.

The use/s basic staff.
Office works, like word, programming, chatting... etc

I might install Blender on it..
Also most likely will install Linux on this computer.

Gaming: not so much, I don't think I will have anything on it actually. Maybe just some simple stuff, nothing new.. or whatever. I have computer for gaming.

If you aren't going to be gaming or anything really graphics intensive (Lots of Photoshop or Digital Video Editing), I would say this laptop fits pretty well with what you need it to do.
