Is Intel core i3 7100T i.e. Power Optimized Lifestyle version of i3 7100 good enough?

I am buying a new tower pc from HP. But in my place HP desktop tower computer only have i3 7100T whereas I wanted normal i3 7100. I know the Power Optimized Lifestyle version is low on power. I only do light computing (MS office, internet surfing etc.).
Will 7100T be enough for me? Is it very different from normal 7100? Does anybody have it? Can I buy i3 7100T? Please help ASAP.

    The i3 7100T isn't the greatest desktop CPU, but for light computing it will work for you. The only difference between it and the regular 7100 is the 7100T has a lower clock which means it runs cooler and uses less power. You lose about 0.5GHz over-wise everything else is the same. If the 7100T is all that you can choose it is sufficient.

    On Passmark the 7100T is about 12% less powerful.
