Yes.  Although ....

8 GB would be preferable - memory is cheap, stick another 4 GB in.

For a desktop system, I'd want a 4 core CPU with at least 6 MB cache instead of this 2 core CPU with 3 MB cache.  But if this is a laptop it's sufficient.

It would work just great ...i even had 2020 and it was more than sufficient...besides "normal" OS operations (Office,VS,Surfimg)occassionally i was running a couple of VMs just fine  ...the only -critical - difference was the SSD...this alone can make even mediocre systems working great

if you want to run a fast system - just swap your harddrive for an SSD - they're becoming rather cheap nowadays

CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

Yes you have all that you need.

these are  Windows 7 system requirements by Microsoft Support:                    By me to run smoother:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor                          3 GHz  or higher  (x64)  

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)                                                           at least 4GB

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)                                            at least 150 GB
i've turned much older models into  fast running W7 systems by swapping the HDD for an SSD
