New PC for processing D7000 RAW files using Lightroom

Was planning on getting a new 17" laptop this week to replace my aging iMac but found a higher spec PC for the same money. It's an HP desktop with a 23" monitor on sale for $1000 and comes with 1 year free Kaspersky Internet Security, which I'll use. I'm thinking Lightroom should run very well on this system. Does anyone see anything in the specs below that could be a problem?
