Can I run Blender (or what would be a good alternative)

Sorry if this is in the wrong section. Anyhow, been planning on doing more 3d animations. I have experience with Lightwave, but that was for a school class.

my laptop is currently.
Processor: INtel® Core™ i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30 Ghz
4 gigs of ram (not sure if it’s upgradable.)

but if this won’t work, was thinking about seeing if any of the ‘black friday sales’ computers would work for blender. I’m really retarded when it comes to recognizing what processors can handle what c.c;
