Don't expect miracles from the T100 but it should be able to do the job. Lack of internal memory will force your daughter in time to move larger files to a usb-disk or stick - i.e. movies in particular. There are also models with more memory, 64GB. You may want to (let someone) remove all unneeded pre-installed software you get for "free" since this will free memory and increases performance.

Lest anyone should take this at face value, may I point out that this is untrue? You are confusing memory and disk space.

As you say, 64 gigabytes is a lot of memory - but it's quite small for a disk drive. Limited memory will restrict the system's performance, but stored files take up disk space, not memory. Moving saved files to external devices can free up disk space but this doesn't affect performance - unless the disk is almost full, that is. Even a larger video file makes no demands on memory unless it is actually in use. The only sense in which unneeded software can affect performance is if it is secretly loaded at start-up or log-in. Disabling such default behaviour can be wise - but there is no additional advantage in removing the products.
