Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
Welcome to Mac Forum
In short yes.... it's the model just under mine with a slightly slower processor, but it will have no problems coping with your needs with ease! :)

I agree. The only thing you might want to upgrade is the RAM. 4GB seems more reasonable, and it's easy to install yourself.

Not necessary though.... mine has been fine with 2GB with a more intensive load than the OP plans on. When I got it I intended on upgrading the RAM, but never had to :)

I am typing this on a first gen macbook pro with same power and RAM and I use this machine for LOTS.

You'll be good with it, if the budget fits!
