Opinions wanted on an Intel i5 processor

What are your thoughts on a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-10500T 6-Core (10th Gen)
Turbo up to 3.8 GHz; 12MB Cache processor that will be in Dell OptiPlex 7080 XE Micro Desktop. At a price of $400 (supposedly a $949.00 MRP) less OS ($50 extra for Windows 10 or 11). No monitor, includes keyboard and mouse. Full details on today's WOOT!
This computer will be used mainly for general home/office use, no gaming, just general record keeping, web surfing and perhaps a streaming of videos. Daughter needs something. Currently using an old laptop to do everything.
I guess my question is it worth the money?

I have an Intel Core i5-11600K (3.9GHz) CPU in a computer I built two years ago. To me, it feels wicked fast. I do some video editing and Photoshop work, and it handles it all very well. I think you'll be more than pleased with that system.

Sounds like enough PC for the needs at a good price.

I cant speak for all the details but this desk top is running an i5 processor, for forum use it seems to be doing just fine! About the only criteria I have for any computer today is a solid state hard drive, everything else for me probably doesn't make much difference!
