Those 3 things look great, but you have to look deeper into the specifications to find if you really got a deal. Here’s a list of things to look at:

-Clock Speed (2.50GHz or higher preferably)
-RAM type (DDR3 or DDR2)
-Graphics Card

See if you can match the same items with other parts from websites like http://newegg.com/. See if you can get a lower price with what you want compared to that…

(If you post the exact model number, it’d be easier for us to just look it up)
