I'd say that would be a good computer for multitasking word documents and surfing the web, but without a graphics card there wouldn't be anyway it would be good for gaming.
Although, you still can play online games and 2-d mmorpgs. (Such as Maple :)

It's fine for everyday tasks as mentioned above but even then I would consider getting an i3 530 or there are plenty of cheap AMD processors out there in that price range. The Core 2 range and DDR2 are a little outdated.
 
Hi there,

This laptop has plenty of RAM (4 GB) and a fast processor so if you will be using productivity tools (such as Office), surfing the web, listening to music, etc. it is definitely a great choice. The only thing that the laptop is probably not capable of is heavy gaming. What do you plan on using it for?

With a little more background information I can make further suggestions.

Cheers,
