I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.
You need to have a look at the specifications to run X-plane. The details can be found at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/x-plane-11-system-requirements/
You haven't indicated any details of your i7 processor and details of the graphics card(GPU).
Is the GPU an integrated unit with the motherboard. If it is not a dedicated card don't expect X-Plane to work. The advice from experienced flight simmers, X-Plane PC builders and within Laminar Research, is you need a dedicated graphics card.
Does your proposed unit have "good" internal cooling. The GPU and CPU are known to generate heat when x-plane is running. If no cooling or inadequate cooling the PC/laptop will crash.
Try the demo download. It will only give you a 10 minute window to trial once you have configured the demo flight.
