Is this a good laptop spec for a CS major?

Dell Studio 1550

CPU: i3 350M @ 2.27 GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD Mobility 5470
RAM: 8GB DDR3 667 MHz (I know, really slow)

I bought this thing back in 2010, and it has served its purpose as well as I could as of it. I'm hoping to go to NCSU for Comp. Science. I'm also planning on building a more beefy desktop for use in the dorm. Will this laptop work for Comp. Science?
