Saw a deal on a new compaq laptop and I don't have much time to make up my mind.

Genuine Windows Vista Home Basic with Service Pack 1
2048MB DDR2 system memory
160GB (5400rpm) hard drive
SuperMulti EX DVD +/- R/RW drivve with Double Layer Support
15.4 diagonal WXGA high-definition BrightView widescreen display
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD with up to 765MB total video memory
802.11b/g wireless LAN
Intergrated 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN (RJ-45 connector)
3 USB 2.0 ports

My old laptop's battery has died and doesn't have a burner. I was looking to burn dvds, use MS word, browse the internet.
I just really don't know if this laptop will crumble if I try to burn dvds or not. Would the processor be up to it? How about Vista and 2 gigs of ram? I could try installing XP if that would help.
