I was going to say, it looks alright to me. If I understand Intel's convoluted product map, a Pentium E5800 is basically a Core 2 Duo with less L2 cache. You won't get top notch performance, but it should be adequate for the majority of games in MAME. I run MAME pretty successfully on a much lower spec machine.

I'd be willing the bet the onboard graphics would be OK, as long as you don't plan to take advantage of the HLSL features. Although 20 bucks for a real video card is probably money well spent, assuming the Lenovo has a PCI-E slot.
