Buying Mom a new notebook, what do you think of these specs for the $?

I am paying, including tax, $652.16 for Mom's new notebook. Has been like 5 years since she had a new one.

I am getting: Lenovo Z570 Laptop - 1024AFU - Gunmetal Gray

2nd generation Intel Core i5-2450M Processor( 2.50GHz 1333MHz 3MB)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 1GB
8.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz
15.6" HD Glare with integrated camera 1366x768
750GB 5400
DVD Recordable
6 Cell Lithium-Ion
Intel 1000 BGN Wireless
Bluetooth Version 2.1 + EDR
1 year base warranty
Integrated 2.0MP Camera

What do you think of this setup for the $650 price tag? Did I get a decent deal or not really? Should I cancel the sucker and keep looking?

Is she a gamer? That's quite a bit more than most users would need.

My Mom loves her Toshiba Dual Core 4gb RAM 15'6"" lappy we got for $300 at Best Buy.

Sounds like a very good notebook at a very good price. I'm sure your Mom will be very happy with it. Although I've never owned one, Lenovo has a good reputation. It has good enough specs to make Mom happy for a few years to come. Now, if you could only get an SSD for it. It's great to see you being so good to your Mom. They are worth it.
