We need a link to full specs. GHZ is not the entire story. For $180 it's probably ok, but I would think you and them would be much happier with spending a bit more and maybe have it last the entire 4 years of HS vs replace it in 2 years or something. A chromebook should also probably be considered.

Chromebooks are extremely popular in many school systems in the country for kids from elementary all the way up to high school. They don't do everything but for most education tasks they are great. Also good for non school kids who want to get online which is a big percentage of people.
