This laptop more than meets the preferred requirements for Linux Lite per the website. It should work. Put it on a USB drive first and boot from the usb drive to try it out first. If you're happy with it, then install it as your bootable OS. Another distro to try is Linux MINT.

Dont think so. Does this PC have a UEFI BIOS? If it doesnt select MBR partition type in rufus first
