Would Express run on laptop with 256GB SSD?

Looking at buying a new laptop - i5, 8GB, 256GB SSD

I know 8GB and i5 are ok, but is 256GB SSD enough to run Express on? Working with a HDD at the moment.

 

Thanks

    GPU more important.

    I'm looking at HP 250 G6 i5-7200U 8GB 256GB SSD, which has Intel® HD Graphics 620.

    Would that be ok do you think?

    I have no idea about graphics cards!

    Looking at the specs that card should be min specs ok but it isnt going to be very fast. Depends what you plan on doing in Hitfilm. Playing with 3d or particle simulation is going to be slow.

     It's only going to be for the kids who want to start a Youtube channel, so pretty basic.

     

    Thanks for your help :)

    Yeah may find they run out of disk space quickly, best invest in an external HD for all the media, then move the movie, sounds, music, images to SDD when working on a video.
