Well, the short answer is: no. It's not going to be a good experience.

 

You do have some things you can do to increase your chances of being able to do it. You have to have an extremely efficient workflow, and mostly what I mean by that is that you should be using low-res, edit-optimized proxies. You do your edit with the low-res proxies (like the ProRes 422 Proxy Low Resolution preset) and hopefully your computer is able to export the originals. It would just take longer.  

I would not plan on being able to do crazy effects or anything like that. But the proxies would potentially let you get an edit out, assuming you don't have any other issues with the installation for being under spec.

That's pretty much a no. 8gb is the minimum for PP, so to be running at the minimun, well, you can figure that one. I just upgrade from a 6850 with 64gb, desktop not a laptop. I could edit 4k, basically in the manner Phillip says. I would use proxies, I picked Cineform. It's simple enough to try it, it just might not be fun enough...:-)

Are you recoding ProRes (on option on the newest iPhone), High Efficiency (H265), or Most Compatible (H264)?  Since you're color grading, hopefully it's ProRes.

 

Your machine should handle a ProRes based Premere Pro Proxy Workflow well provided to add additional storage.

 

If you're not already shooting ProRes on the iPhone, I'd transcode the H265 or H264 clips to ProRes 422 LT for your Full Resolution footage and use 1280-by-720 ProRes Proxy for the attached Proxy files.

 

Transcoding would of course be faster on a fastet machine and your Full Resoution exports will take awhile, but editing in Proxy mode should work well and as intended.

 

If you're shooting H265 or H264 you could opt to use either of those as the Full Resolution footage, you can still use 1280-by-720 ProRes 422 Proxy for the attached Proxy files.

 

Whichever approach you take, you'll probably need more storage.  An external USB3 should handle 1280-by-720 ProRes Proxy clips just fine, be it a regular hard drive or SSD/Flash storage.  If upgrading the 256GB NVME SSD to a higher capacity is an option, that's worth doing.

To be serious,

 

It will work, albeit very poorly. You see, the MX 130 does not have hardware decoding or hardware encoding at all of any type, and it is now outdated because it used the first-gen Maxwell architecture which dated all the way back to the GeForce 750 series in early 2014 - more than eight years ago! Plus, the MX 130 used the lower-end variant of the GM10x GPU that has absolutely no hardware decoder or encoder at all whatsoever, forcing all decoding and encoding onto the CPU.

 

Speaking of the CPU, the 8th-gen i5 is more than likely a U-series Whiskey Lake CPU that has very low sustainable clock speeds despite being a Skylake-derived CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads. It (your current system) is much weaker in performance than even a 2020 M1-powered MacBook Air, let alone a current-gen Intel-powered budget laptop with an 11th-Gen (Tiger Lake) or a 12th-Gen (Alder Lake) CPU.

 

As such, I would not even try 4k or HEVC video editing on that laptop at all. In fact, it is barely suitable for even 1080p H.264 video editing work.

 

Now, if you always transcode your HEVC footage to a less-compressed, more edit-friendly format, then maybe. But for working directly with the iPhone's native HEVC footage, forget about it.
