These are relatively good specifications for the money, especially considering the large 640GB hard drive and ample 6GB of RAM. The second-generation Intel Core i5 processor should be able to tackle nearly any task without breaking a sweat, whether that be general Internet surfing or video encoding.
The K53E looks slim chassis at about 1.4" at the highest point. It's also very light for a notebook this size at 5.27 lbs.
