It should run, but "efficiently" would be questioned given the resources cited.
I would have concerns about the size and the formats of the video to be edited related to processor and 4 GB installed RAM.
The Adobe System Requirements are typically minimum requirements that will at least get the program installed and get you
through some basic SD projects.
But, no matter what I or others might comment, I would take a look at the tryout program in your specific computer environment to see
for yourself how this all works or does not work for you for your planned projects.
If you have more details, we would be glad to comment on them.
Thank you for your insight on this. Most videos will be edited to about 1 minute, some audio, some not. I'll try the trial period, and if it doesn't work, then no harm no foul.

Thanks for the reply.
Just be aware that Adobe should be releasing a new version of Premiere Elements at the end of September 2014. No one but Adobe knows the feature set for a new version. It is only made public at the moment of release of the new version. Premiere Elements 12 will continue to be the tryout version until a new version is released. Then the new version will be offered as tryout thereafter. I always go the tryout before any purchase considerations.
