$1150 USD for a MacBook Pro 2019 16-inch. Good deal?

Hey, so I’m looking at buying this for a few months worth of work until I move to an M1 Max @ 64GB RAM. Looking to buy this as a temporary and immediate solution. Would these specs be enough to handle 3D and motion design work?

MacBook Pro 2019 16-inch
* i7 2.6GHz (6-core)
* 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 RAM
* 512GB SSD
* Radeon Pro 5300M 4GB DDR6
* Price: $1150 USD (used)

Is the price fair for this laptop? And would these specs be enough to handle 3D and motion design work? Is overheating going to be a problem here?

Another concern is the 512GB SSD. The apps that I plan on downloading (and their files) already might eat up a bunch of this storage space, but I can probably get around that with an external SSD. Does anybody know if it’s possible to use a Samsung T5 external SSD as the primary boot drive? I read something about a T2 security chip that prevents this, no?

Thanks!
