I'm looking to buy a PC with the following specs. Does it look like it can handle Resolve, or does anyone see a problem?

thanks,

Check my specs, below. Nowhere near what you're looking at, and it handled Resolve and everything I threw at it up until the GH5 firmware update and 400mbps ALL-I codec video files.

Dell XPS 8920
Intel i7 core 7700 build
GeForce GTX 1050ti
32 Gigs of RAM
3 7200 RPM SATA Drives
Windows 10 64-bit
DaVinci Resolve 14.3

Resolve will run on a laptop but your computer spec depends more on what real time performance with the codecs and pixel aspects you need to work at. Personally I prefer 32 gig of RAM and an onboard RAID that can handle the speeds I need. I also have USB-c/ Thunderbolt 3 on my mobo.

You really should get more RAM...16GB is bare minimum. 32 is better.

And I don't know if Resolve will run on Windows HOME edition. It's high end professional software and from my research on the matter, Blackmagic Design said that it requires Windows Professional.

I concur on the 32 gigs, but I can also confirm that Resolve runs with no problems on Windows 10 Home.
