4k to 1080p export times

I am editing a premiere pro cc video project. 

The footage is 4k.

I will be putting the video on youtube.

I'm having problems with extremely long export times and

choppy playback (mostly with effects on) and the computer

fan running like crazy. I'd like to continue editing on my laptop,

I do animation all the time without this issue.  This project isn't

animation, just video.

This new short video is 10 mins without many effects. 

Shouldn't take 8 hours to export, right?

  1. Should I make my movie project sequence set to 4k or 1080p to edit?
  2. What are the best settings for importing, for project sequence, for exporting.

    I had export set to max rendering quality, VBR 1, youtube 1080p HD 29.97

  1. Is my model of computer capable of doing this?

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012)

2.3 GHz Intel Core i7

8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB

Are my settings wrong? 

Anything I can do to improve the flow and ease of this process?

Thanks for your thoughts!

That, by video standards, is ancient and very under-powered. With resizing 4k to 1080 and very little else ... yea, I wouldn't be surprised that a rig with only 8GB of RAM and the old Intel HD graphics is working pretty slow.

The laptop is very weak. That beig said it would be best to have a 4K sequence and render to 1080P. You might be able to edit 4K at 1/8 resolution or you might not. If you cannot then you will have to drop the 4K video into a 1080P sequence. You might have to edit at 1/2 or 1/4  resolution.
