Laptop Selection Help

Dd (11) has a netbook that seems to be on its' last legs. I've been looking around to try to find a budget (under 300) replacement, preferably a laptop since she does online classes. Other than that, mostly web browsing and word processing. For the most part I've been looking at refurbs, and have found one (a Thinkpad) with the following specs:
1) FAST Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz Processor. 2) 2.0GB DDR2 memory. 3) Large 80GB Hard disk. 4) Fast Wireless 802.11g (WiFi) and wired internet.
5) DVD (watch DVD movies). 6) 14.1" Widescreen Display. 7) Includes a 56k modem + 10/100/1000 ethernet, VGA and audio output, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1394 Firewire. 8) Battery included. 9) AC charger / adapter included. Software included: 1) Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium fresh preloaded.

This falls within the budget, and looks like a great deal to me. My concern is the age thing. Original manufactoring was in 2007. While I consider myself relatively knowledgeable, I wanted some second opinions from people more tech savvy than I am. Totally open to suggestions, preferably laptops..just under $300. ** I did look at chromebooks, but not hot on the pita to print, and that you can't download to it.
