Is This a Good Setup?

As some of you have seen my other topic (Thinking of Buying a New Computer is This a Good Setup) well that was about a desktop and now this is about a laptop. I thinking now instead of buying a desktop I might buy a Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop that has this configuration:

Processor: Intel® Pentium® Dual Core™ T4400 (2.2GHz/800MHz FSB/1MB cache)
Operating System: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English

Network Card: Integrated 10/100 Network Card
Combo or DVD+RW Drive: 8X CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)
Sound: High Definition Audio 2.0
Wireless Networking Cards: Dell Wireless 1397 802.11g Half Mini-Card

Would this be a good buy or not?

It's outdated but would be okay if you have a tight budget. I would get an i3 or i5 CPU, DDR3 RAM, and an 7200RPM hard drive. This has NONE of these things. It better be real inexpensive...but like I would work. I personally have a Core 2 Duo CPU in my lappy. I also has DDR3 RAM, and a 7200 RPM HD does alright.
