If you're cutting 1080p Apple ProRes (any flavor) from a Thunderbolt drive or USB3 drive, you'll be fine; however, you'll have issues with the built-in display at times as it's natively 1280 by 800 and some of the Premiere Pro dialog boxes don't resize.  Fortunately, it supports an external monitor to up to fine 2560 x1600 via DisplayPort Mini.

If you're cutting 2160p Apple ProRes (any flavor), go with the Proxy workflows using 720p Apple ProRes proxies.

Also, you'll be using Software Only for the Mercury Playback Engine.  Things'll work, they'll just take longer.

On the up side, if you're running macOS High Sierra 10.13 or newer, you'll be able to take advantage of the Intel CPU hardware acceleration for H264 encoding.

If you haven't already done it, consider upgrading the Macintosh HD to a 2.5-inch SSD.  Your boot times and application launch times will improve significantly.
