Default Will this laptop do these things?

Would this laptop be any good?
Just wondered of this laptop is any good for things like writing word documents, browsing the web, watching YouTube videos, going on Facebook, Skypeing people, listining to music on iTunes. And if it can, how well will it run them?

Default Re: Will this laptop do these things?

Virtually ANY laptop could do well at the things you have listed as none of them are particularly demanding computer tasks.

For comparison purposes, the Celeron CPU in this laptop is slightly less powerful than an Intel Core i3 processor. However, it's less expensive and uses less energy than the i3.

Unless you see your computing needs changing in the near future, the laptop should be OK for you. However, if you could find a laptop with an i3 or i5 processor for the same price, that would be a better choice.
