Is this a good laptop ??

I am new to laptops. I want to play lovefilm online player on my TV a Panasonic viesta. I am sure it has the relevant connections being a good modern-ish TV. I wanted to play the movies from my laptop wireless to the TV.

A few questions-

1) will the laptop if plugged in use as much electricity as an average sky + plus box.

2) Is the processor quick enough 3) I assume my laptop runs off the wireless router connected to my desktop like my mobile phone does at the moment. Is a laptop cable running from my laptop to my TV going to work ? (please ask for any clarification). Note- Do I do not need two routers-one for desktop and one for a laptop. If I have to get another router I will.

4) Will my broadband provider charge more for using a second laptop computer and a new router if I have to do it this way ?(hoping not to do it this way)

Other unrelated questions-

Will it run most applications and be fairly good for surfing ?( I am not a gamer)

Will it be adequate for the next 3 years as a laptop for me ?

Hope this is logical and answerable- if not can you tell me if it does not make sense.

Thanks very much!

The laptop is an old piece of used crap by Dell, you're only buying trouble. XP is dead ! Put a few more quid in and buy a new one or an X-Box or Sony Playstation
