Is this Laptop deal worth it?
My uncle is trying to buy a laptop and he only wants to use it casually. No gaming, just usual browsing, email and stuff.
I found a good deal, at least from my point of view, what do you guys think? He wanted the price range to be around $400.

My only issue is the batter but since he's not a heavy gamer it shouldnt be a problem. I talked to the tech for more specifications and he said that RAM is as is and it is not upgradable.
There are 2 USB 2.0 ports
1x HDMI 1.3"
1x headphone/speaker out
3-in-1 Media Card Reader"
Is this a good deal?

For the purpose it looks like an OK deal to me. Especially the i3 is an asset.
Here are a few at Newegg for comparison. http://www.newegg.com/store/SubCateg...=32&Tpk=laptop
