Yes, it's compatible. See the minimum specs here [link].

However, I'll note that the AMD graphics card on here will not accelerate Ae CS6's ray-tracing renderer. For that, you need an NVIDIA graphics card with CUDA support. There's a list of supported cards on the link above. Unsupported NVIDIA cards may work if you edit the text file that tells Ae what cards it can use.

I'll also note that this won't really be a performance machine: you'd get better performance from a quad-core i7 and 16GB of RAM. Of course, you'll pay more, too, so it's a matter of balancing performance against budget.

It won't set speed records, but if you aren't expecting miracles you ought to be okay.
