Pro Tools First 2018 on Core2Duo?

Anyone have some experience using Pro Tools (First) 2018 on a Core2Duo? I just gave away this old 2.66 MHz MBP to a musician I haven't met. It will be received with a Focusrite 2i2 3rd gen and the entry version of Protools seemed like a good engine. Mostly it will be external recordings, I believe.

I managed to install 2018.6 under OS X 10.11 before I had to part with it. Is it advisable update it to 2018.12, the last compatible version? I don't use Protools that much, so my experience is limited with the incremental versions.

Can Protools 2018 work out for recording on such an old machine? Or could using an older Protools give a better experience?
