HP Envy 4t Ultrabook CPU ghz too low?

Games & Technology
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.
I have this exact same delema, I was looking at this exact laptop and wondering the same thing if the graphics card makes up for the low CPU
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.
