If you need a simple (and cheap) laptop for note-taking at class, using spreadsheets, typing, documents, or typing emails at a coffee shop, this could be a good deal for you.

The Celeron processor is fairly under-powered, so this laptop probably cannot play games, edit videos, or compile programming code.
