That's good for word documents, everything within budget is, but that one in particular is good because it had adequate RAM and a decent multi core CPU for multitasking (EG Internet while typing as a video loads in the back round)

All around good computer for your task. If you could spent more money you could get a little nicer laptop, but thats true for most things.
But @ 400 it adequately suits your needs just fine:)
