Second-hand MacBook Pro Advice

I'm looking to purchase a used/refurbished MacBook Pro. My budget is around £350.
I will mostly be using it for Photoshop and Lightroom.
I have seen this one on eBay. Any thoughts or opinions on whether this is a good deal and whether the specs are up to task in 2019?
Apple MacBook Pro 13.3" Core i5 2.3ghz 4GB 320GB (Early,2011) A Grade 13 m wrnty 885909533923 | eBay
Any other suggestions for sites with good, cheap MacBooks, please? Also, how recent should a Mac be? I understand Apple discontinue support for older machines after a certain amount of time. I discovered this on my 2008 MacBook Pro
Thanks in advance for any replies.

As far as a 2011 MacBook Pro in 2019. I have three 2011 computers I use regularly (2011 17"MBP, 2011 13" MBA, 2011 13" MBP)...and the 13" 2011 MacBook Pro (same as linked here...but with 8gig of RAM)...is the slowest.
I don't know if £350 is a good deal or not (check the previous ebay sales)...but if it was me...I would be looking for something newer.
