Purchasing a new laptop: Dell Latitude E7470: I7-6600U dualcore 2.6Ghz; 16B with 256GB SSD. Display is 14"HD(1366x768.  Will this display handle the graphics needed for Premier Pro or do I need something more advanced?

do I need something more advanced?

I recommend step 4.

Minimum graphics resolution requirement according to Adobe is 1280x800.

So the answer to your question is YES!

The rest of the specification is also far from ideal.

Adobe's minimum quoted specifiation - link below - provides more of a stagger than a run.

Actually, like I had stated many, many times, 1366x768 does not meet the minimum required vertical resolution for the Premiere work area to be displayed properly. In fact, critical portions of the work area will become irrecoverably hidden with a 1366x768 display (this means that not only the dialog boxes cannot be resized any smaller, but also the boxes cannot be moved sufficiently to reveal those critical buttons that are required to render or export projects). The only fix would be an external monitor that's connected via HDMI, which would have totally defeated the primary purpose of a laptop to begin with.

And to expand on that, both the "1200" and the "800" resolution numbers must be met or exceeded. One must never add or multiply the two resolution numbers! It just doesn't work out that way. Each number must be considered separately.

As such, if that display were 16x9, the display resulution must be 1424x800 or higher to properly display the Premiere Pro work area. 1366x768 cannot cut it at all.

Even if it would run, a dual core processor would not allow a pleasant editing experience.

That's another strike against the laptop in question: That i7-6600U, which cannot Turbo at all when both cores are in use (but instead stays locked to the stock frequency of 2.6 GHz), is much slower than even a cheapo desktop i3-6100 CPU (which I had previously determined to be already marginal for any kind of HD video editing).
