For your purposes, it's perfectly fine. And the price is right.

It's fine for the stated purpose but not worth much else with the processor it has.

But like Tom_T said the price is right.

Always use the right tool for the job at hand and for your job (web surfing, paying bills) that PC is the right tool.

A good result from a lawsuit.
