Hardware selection

Hi, I’m new to the community and I want to enter the world of home automation with home assistamt, it’s my first time and any help you can give me would be great.

my question. can i use a mini pc with intel pentium j4205 processor with 8gb ram and 128gb to install home assistant OS?

I know it is a somewhat old processor but to start and automate my house.

Thanks to all who give me their comment

Yes but it would need to be running 24/7 -

thanks for your answer Kruseluds,

no problem leaving it running 24/7. the point is that I want to have a hardware so I can grow for a long time and forget about it.
