Good day. I just want to know if my laptop can run Unreal Engine 4 with these specs:
Processor: i5-5200U 2.2 GHz Video Card: GT 840M RAM: 4 GB (to be upgraded into 8 GB)
Thanks for anyone who will answer.

Yes you can. I run a 750m 8gb on a 2.4 ghz i7. You may find that it will run better if you open nvidia control panel and add unreal engine to run off nvidia. If you do not do this it will run off the the built in Intel GPU. I also recommend you adjust your project settings to low graphic quality as you build because as your scene gets complex in verticies and material shaders the editor will lag. There are a lot of other things you can do as you build, it just won't look beautiful until you package the game.
You could try using an external GPU (eGPU).
Here is Unreal Engine 4 running on a Dell Latitude E6530 laptop with a gen 3 i7 quad core processor using a GTX 960 as an external GPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPgm_k8gPD0
