Hi,

 

My current laptop has an i7 processor,
8GB RAM.
Graphics card: NVIDIA GEFORCE MX230
This graphics card is not on the Adobe Premiere Pro list of system requirements.
Will I experience problems if I buy the Premiere Pro and install it?
 
Thanks

Two problems (not counting your disk storage):

 

Your laptop has too little RAM to run Premiere Pro properly. You see, most if not all Intel CPU-based laptops have their integrated Intel HD Graphics permanently enabled, with absolutely no way at all to disable it. This eats up a lot of system RAM - to the point where you may have less than 2 GB of RAM available to run any programs whenever the IGP is used for H.264 or HEVC decoding or encoding.

 

Next, that MX230 does not have a hardware H.264 or HEVC decoder or encoder at all. This will force you to use either software-only decoding and encoding or only the Intel IGP for decoding (you cannot use QuickSync hardware encoding with a discrete GPU installed since Adobe does not currently support simultaneous QuickSync and NVENC encoding, and the mere presence of an Nvidia GPU driver will automatically force NVENC without any provision at all whatsoever to change it).

 

Finally, the MX230 barely has enough VRAM to even run Premiere Pro properly. What's more, this low amount of discrete VRAM will force software-only renders with no indication at all because most modern workflows will deplete a GPU's low amount of VRAM completely and quickly.

You know your stuff, thanks for the response.
What is the lowest cost Nvidia GPU I can use that will enable me to perform
basic editing. I will have to get a new laptop.

For that, a GTX 1650 mobile GPU (or better still, an RTX 3050 mobile GPU) would be my recommended minimum for basic video editing workflows.
