On the Intel side, the Yonah Core Duo is essentially 2 die-shrunken Dothans in 1 die on a substrate with their L2 caches unified. Some minor additions such as SSE3 were also included, but that does not affect the overall instructions-per-clock in comparison to Dothan. Unless that specific application heavily uses SSE3 instructions.
As for the A4-5000 vs Core Duo T2500 comparison, I am afraid that I can't give a very accurate answer. I can only roughly guess that the A4-5000 would be no match for the T2500 in single-threaded operations, but the A4-5000 will be far exceeding the multi-threaded capabilities of the T2500. As in, something like a approximate two-fold boost in multi-threaded performance.
In basic tasks, such as what you mentioned, would be far more suitable and responsive for the A4-5000. This is only assuming that the latest features (4 cores are used properly) of the A4-5000 are used, though. However, in specific tasks that require better single-threaded performance, expect the T2500 to be slightly quicker.

Also, an SSD is highly recommended-- my mom has a quad-core Celeron N3160 laptop, which was slow as molasses with Windows 10 and HDD; upgrading the HDD to a budget SSD (WD Green 120GB) made it much better.
