If your intended usage is to surf the internet and IM/email then yeah.

If your intent is video/photo editing or gaming, then no.

Your budget also comes into play, but more importantly, your intended use.

When you say movies, are we talking like Netflix streaming video? If thats the case, your internet speed is going to be the deciding factor on the performance, rather than the actual computer, as it is a browser based video feed.

I think your current computer is probably just fine for your needs.
