SG300-10PP switch - will this be suffice for a core router in a satelite office

I'm looking to install a core router in a remote site that is currently setup as one be 16bit LAN, it has some managed switched already but in un-manged mode (not configured).    I'm considering putting an SG300-10PP 10-Port Gigabit Managed Switch in as the core.  In the specs it shows layer 3 capable.   I'm looking to split the network up into VLAN's, one for PC's, Servers, Printers, and possibly Wireless.   I'm about %75 in know of how to do this but I'm not sure if this switch will the right fit.  Has anyone else used these models for similar functions or suggestions?   Thanks!

yes that will work - we are using some 500 ones (they can stack) and some 300

@vlans - if your network is small (less then 50 devices) don't use them -  keep it simple

Great, Thanks for the advice JAN PAKULA.    This site is exactly 101 devices.  
I'll look at the 500 series also, The ability to stack will also provide some redundancy I suppose.

Right now with one big LAN and un-managed switches we have the ability to throw in any type of "dumb-switch" anywhere to fix an issue.  If we have a configured core and it goes down it's best to have a backup or stack?  I need to do more research obviously.

stack would be better as you could have 10Gb between them - but cost  of 500x is to be taken into account :-)
