Unfortunately your link doesn't work. It tells me that cookies aren't enabled - which is cobblers.

Thus, I can't see any details of the product.

Give us a clue about the price/specs.

better processor
warranty opt for the 90 day collect and return service

The laptop you've listed, in 2 threads,
will be quite slow by today's standards. The lack of RAM is a potential problem. Anti-virus, etc could hog a lot of the meagre resources.
3 month warranty isn't very good.

It will do word processing and get on the internet.

If it is a good buy depends on your budget.
