Main uses: Internet purposes(browsing, and basic internet stuff), typing on word or doing powerpoint stuff, bringing it to places like school or maybe work, etc.

Not really interested in it for gaming purposes, or for a main focus on editing video content(IE Sony vegas)

Already have a LenovoY580, but just want a secondary laptop I can use for whenever. Since I like to keep my better laptop inside the house.

It could use more RAM but you said you weren't using it for editing or gaming so the 4GB's will be enough for general use and for your school related stuff. I looked at Dell and they had pretty much the exact same spec'd laptop for the same price.
