In short, no.

 

For Premiere Pro you want a fast CPU, 3.0 GHz or faster, more RAM and no 5400 rpm hard drive and a dedicated graphic cards will do wonders if you work with LUT´s. Today you want an SSD disk, or two. The minimun screen resolution required are 1280x800 and you will have problems with 1366x768.

 

Here are the System requirements for Premiere Pro. That´s a good starting point to see what the minimum specifications and the recommended specifications are. 🙂

I hate to say it, but Averdahl is most likely right. I often see people say "is this powerful enough for Premiere?" and I usually respond with "well, it depends on the complexity of your projects." But the specs youve listed are VERY low for an application like Premiere. I mean, will it RUN Premiere? Yes, but itll likely run preettttttty awfully. To expand on what Averdahl was saying:

At least an i7 not an i5

Dedicated GPU by  NVIDIA or AMD, not just an integrated one by Intel

SSD instead of an

SSD instead of an HDD, but if you MUST go HDD, make sure it's 7200 RPM and not 5400, which is  the worst slowest type of consumer drive in existance. 

16GB of RAM is STRONGLY recommended on any computer you buy in 2019 nowadays

I've detailed my editing style that i mostly do/edits in my projects and how the specs are low as Adobe Recommends Intel 6thgen or later and it is 8thgen with 1.6 - 3.4Turbo boost. Unfortunately that laptop doesn't comes with Dedicated GPU but can i not work in Intel UHD 620? and i can Upgrade the Ram or SSD but 8GB is enough for me as i don't do multi tasking while i do editing in premiere 

Thanks for best replies, jasontcox

That really won't help.

As said, the processor is weak. 8 GB RAM may let it install and it may run, but it will be a frustrating editing experience.

It would be better to save up a few more dollars and get a more suitable computer.

As Peru Bob stated, you will need to spend significantly more than that: Every single laptop that costs less than $1,000 USD make do with a weakling (by current standards) U-series quad-core CPU, or (worse) CPUs that have only two physical cores and/or based on the Atom architecture (which is much less powerful than the Core architecture). What's more, cheaper laptops cannot accommodate more than a single internal disk - the disk where the operating system and preinstalled programs are preinstalled onto.

 

As a result of all that, you will need to up your laptop budget to at least $1,000 USD just to get a configuration with the minimum recommended specs (as tested by pros) - and then, you will need to budget additional funds for external USB 3,x or Thunderbolt 3 drives (preferably SSDs).
