I don’t think most normal users would need 512GB.
IT really depends on what he is doing.
With read/write at 500 MB for a Sata-based SSD, he doesn’t need to worry too much about that either.
I’d say a Core I5 would do it. AMD vs. intel either of these would be fine.
We have no idea what kinda budget he is working with so THESE are just some points to consider.
I do however agree with the 8GB ram.

At a bare minimum, go for gigabit ethernet options, 8 gb of dual channel ram, an ssd of at least 512 gb, 1tb if you can aford it, even if you don't use 1tb the 1tb drive has a much higher write speed and endurance. A processor should be at least current gen 11th gen intel or fifth gen AMD r5, don't getv stuff like pentium/celeron/i3 processors.
