I have hear AMD K6 300MhZ / 160 MB RAM and it runs like a charm 
even with KDE (which is certainly not a light window manager). R 
itself does not take much space but everything depends on your 
data -- R takes everything into memory, so with 60MB crime data 
I had to put everything into PostgreSQL and even then it is not 
much fast.
