Arts based subjects only require research and writing, no number crunching or awesome graphics. People used to do it with a library and a notepad.
If you want only a word processor, then get one. Most students use their computer for a lot more than that. I have 2 college students in my house right now. Also keep in mind that usually Asus costs a whole lot more than $400. They only have one Asus listed for price range, and it is really designed mainly for web surfing and word processing. It would choke on anything much harder than that. I bought for one student and had to return it.

(BTW, the reason I keep having so many kids is that I take in teens that are abused and/or kicked out by their parents. Right now my wife and I have 3 teens that are not our biological kids. )
