Could these low end chips handle tasks smoothly in windows 10 , non S,
Mainly for web browsing, chrome/youtube, excel or maybe multitask 2 of them
Will experience be very laggy? If not which budget cpu would be best in terms of user experience?

I do all that with a Core 2 Duo e7500 with 7GB of ram. W10 was almost unusable with only 4gb, but the extra ram and an ssd really helped, and there are usually 15+ YT tabs open in Chrome while doing other things (Roblox, web searches, etc) with little issue.

Sort of, yes.

But, RAM amount is a key component.
Excel may be an issue.

And how much are you going to pay for this, or are you getting a no-cost cast off from someone?

Dex sucks. Even on my good PC with my S9 it is laggy and not pleasant to use. First gen i5 should do fine with W10, better than my C2D, it sounds like you would benefit greatly from more ram if possible.
