Most any Core 2 Duo (64bit does deal with hardware requirements, the cpu has to be 64bit compatible; this also allows for 3.25+-GB limit on 32bit to be exceeded)

4GB of RAM is fine, too many people **** it out of proportion... I've operated 7 on a core duo (red headed middle child between the pentiums and core 2 architecture) and 1GB of RAM, granted 2 made a big difference, and 4 is fantastic :)

You don't HAVE TO HAVE a dedicated graphics card, but if you want to run aero and multitask, a very basic dedicated is enough.

Win7 and Office honestly are NOT that hard to run. Other apps might be, but then, we weren't informed of anything else.
