HP Envy 4t Ultrabook CPU ghz too low?

I hate beating the death out of will my pc run this blah blah blah, but I am about to buy a new laptop for school and was looking at the new series hp ultrabooks.

Here is the configuration I am going for:
2nd gen Intel Core i5-2467M Processor(1.6 GHz)
AMD 2GB Radeon HD 7670M Discrete-Class Graphics
4 GB (1 DIMM) 1600mhz

I am slightly worried about the low Ghz on the CPU. I know the graphics will be fine, but should I up the memory to 6 or 8GB to help the CPU out?

It'll work just fine.

4GB is fine, but 8GB won't hurt either, especially considering it's 1 RAM stick (it would be in single channel mode).

But aren't Envy laptops expensive?

$845 shipped fully configured with a free Xbox 360. Not too bad.

I want an ultra portable because my campus is huge haha so I know I am paying a premium.

That CPU can also burst up to 2.3ghz, not to mention its an i5 processor and I've been running DIII on a 1.8ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with a 9600GT just fine.

Anything with a i3, i5, i7 and a decent enough GPU to actually run D3 should be more then fine for it.
