If he likes the size, weight, screen and keyboard, needs an i7 and 8GB RAM, and 2 hard disks totalling 3 GB and doesn't need a gaming laptop, it's useful.

But if he prefers a smaller or lighter one, or an SSD or only one hard disk (or things you didn't mention and I didn't check if they are included, like Bluetooth or an optical drive, or a better video) buy something else.
