Acer Aspire E 15 - General Use?

Hey everyone,

 

I'm shopping around for laptops right now and I need a general-use machine for my mom. She goes on trips sometimes and takes my brother with her, so at the very least I would like it to be able to play minecraft and portal.

I have a 1TB SSD I picked up earlier to throw into whatever computer I get her. Do you think the Acer Aspire E 15 is a good choice for web browsing, entertainment, low-demand games, and portability?

 

If there is something better out there, please let me know what you think. I'll be buying around this weekend because her current laptop is on its deathbed :(
