    How decent of a laptop is this? I'm on a tight budget.

    What Spur said.....

    My first reaction is, most people would be very happy with this computer. Most people only browse the internet, surrender to Facebook and maybe watch movies or listen to music. This should be fine. If you're looking at gaming, you might end up disappointed. If you're using this as the foundation of your home music studio or to launch your movie career with your sweet video editing skillz......you will be greatly disappointed. However, you're not likely to find anything better at that price and actually, you could spend a lot more and not get everything this offers.

    If you think this will work for you jump on it, they'll go quick but make sure you take the model number and find some expert and user reviews first.

    Just normal things. I'm only buying a new one out of necessity, as my current netbook is at the end of it's lifespan. Basically, I'd like a relatively inexpensive thing that does its job but it won't die on me easily.

    So basically, I won't be gaming on it and I won't be using it for creative projects.

    Not flashy, but it looks like a decent bet.
