I use my computer for 

 

Surfing the net

Watching streaming videos on Hulu, Amazon and sites like that

Playing Flash games occasionally

Rarely playing games like League of Legends or games that you would find on BigFish

Sometimes typing documents

 

But mostly watching stuff on streaming sites like Hulu are surfing the net

 

Would this computer or a computer with similar specs be good for that;

If so, what are some good computers with similar specs 

If not, what would be a good computer for my purposes under 900-1,000 bucks?

Hi, the HP would suit your streaming needs and it is well priced for what you are getting although i am having doubts on it's capabilities of playing LoL due to the integrated graphics.

Thanks for the answer. Would it be good for Skype? (sorry if this is stupid question but i'm not very computer savvy)

 

Also what do you mean by integrated graphics?

Yes it can handle Skype and integrated graphics is the graphics portion that is part of the CPU hence no dedicated graphics card.
