You know that you can download a trial version of CS5 to test.
I do not know if it requires Windows 7 but you do have a dual-core laptop, which suggests it it powerful enough to run the application.
Download the trial and check it out. you may answer your own question.

That would be true Ken, but he was looking at the Web Premium which has neither of those applications.
You can download the trial to be 100% sure as was previously suggested but that processor is from Q2 09. So it is fairly new even though it is at the low end of laptops. I would say it is ok. But if you are serious about getting into design and working with these programs on a regular basis you will need to start looking at laptops closer to the $1,000 range for better performance and dedicated video cards.

Can anyone tell me if this will be good enough to handle CS5 web premium?
The CS5 Web Premium System Requirements page is here:
Your specs seem to qualify.
I would still recommend taking the Trial for a spin before parting with the cash.
if i download the CS5 trial
will that affect my CS4?
But thanx i'll do that now
No, but because of shared files you cannot run the CS5 and CS4 app at the same time. For instance, you can run Photoshop CS5 with Dreamweaver CS4, but not Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CS4.
