550 MHz will be a bit slow for playing DivX/XviD movies, especially if
they're high definition (beyond 640x480 approx).  Presumably Windows
is installed on it at the moment, so you can give the Windows version
of VLC a test run.

The RAM & HDD specs are fine.  Provided the laptop's integrated video
and networking is supported, you should be good to go.
