15.4" screen? Yes.
2 Gb Ram? Definitely.
T5550? Could be overkill. My Inspiron 6400 has a T2300 which runs great.
Yup I agree. Even after my screen battle with Dell for that price range it's hard to beat a Dell Vostro 1500 for $700. Has everything you need and if you call Dell you can probably swing a slightly better deal. Get them to downgrade your ram and buy some from ncix instead. Here's one with the default config.
