It might work OK for Photoshop Elements and it might not for Premier Elements.  The CPU looks slow based on this chart:  PassMark CPU Benchmarks - High Mid Range CPUs   The rating there is about half of what works well. 

It will depend a lot on what he wants to do and what is source material is. 

The safe thing to do is to take advantage of the free trials and see for your self before you buy. 

Go here:  Frequently Asked Questions | Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018

At the bottom of the page are links to the free trials which are exactly the same as what you buy but limited in how long you can use them.
