I am looking to get into app development, I tried to run android studio on my old laptop but quickly realized it will not be powerful or fast enough to develop apps. I am looking at buying a refurbished desktop off amazon and I was wondering if these specs look good enough to run android studio well. If you see any problems please let me know, thanks!

Make sure that Windows is 64-bit, or it won't use more than 4gb of RAM.

It all depends what you will use this Studio for. For "Hello, world" apps it will be more than enough. If you plan rolling out your own ROMs, I would swap (or add) an SSD, and probably another 8gb of RAM.
