The page you have linked to at Sears provides answers to some of your questions. Here are the key specs: 7" LCD (800 x 480 pixels) Windows Embedded Compact 7 1GHz ARM11 processor 512MB RAM 2GB Flash HDD MicroSD card slot Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n Ethernet 3 x USB 2.0 ports Microphone / headphone jacks While this netbook features significantly more processing power and memory than the previous model in this line (SYNET7WID: 300MHz / 128MB), it is still a very humble system by today's standards. Additionally, the screen is tiny. For these reasons, this really shouldn't be your primary computer, whether for streaming videos or composing essays or reports. (And since I have no way of knowing your level of technical expertise, let me remind that the owner must provide or designate a point for Internet access.) So your guardian may be effectively throwing away the $100 she'll pay for this Sylvania; and neither of you will be happy in the end. Even considering your family is on a budget, there are much better choices available for another $200 or so. If I were you, I would figure out a way to contribute to, or make up for, the cost of a better system -- maybe no birthday or Christmas gifts for the next three years? Mow some lawns next summer? Do some babysitting? Because as I see it, you may end up never using this device -- but even a modest entry-level HP or Acer should still be functional, and allow you to be productive, three years from now.

Those specs are matching for medium task. all your needs become easily working in this laptop.
But Laptop is a compact and portability. also do you think to working long time pls use cooling pad for better cooling. use power adapter to speed up the system. because if you set balanced power management, speed reduced when you using battery power.
Also use better virus and security guard for fight viruses and mal ware.

Possibly not. You need i3 minimum but better i5
The lower spec machines will get outdated very quickly.
