Need urgent help on configuration

I am buying a new laptop very urgently as I need to surrender my current laptop. I need to install TTU 14.10 in the new laptop.

I chose this Lenovo laptop with this configuration below. The OS is Windows 8 , home basic. I am being told that there is no guarantee

that VMWARE can work with it, since Lenovo does not work on VMWARE or Teradata. My question is  will I be able to download VMWARE

and work with VMWARE with Windows8 home basic ( and not Windows8 professional):
