I am not a fan of the laptop form factor.  I only recommend laptops for people who require their computer to be portable.  You can get more machine for the same money if you go with a desktop.


That said, looking at the Rust and Cube World sites that machine would have no issues playing either.  The good speed on the web will depend more upon how you are connecting than the machine.  Programming shouldn't be an issue.  The screen size is rather large for a laptop, but small compared to a desktop.


I'm not fond of the Acer brand, but wasn't able to find anything better in your price range.


One other thing, I recommend a touch screen for Windows 8 if you've never used Windows 8 with a mouse before.
