Minimum hardware requirements

From the help handbook FAQ:

What kind of hardware do I need to run TDE?

To run TDE it is recommended that you have at least a pentium II processor, 64MB of memory and 500MB of free disk space for a basic installation. While TDE may run on slower configurations than this, performance can be severely impaired. Generally, if your computer runs an X-Server already with other desktop environments or window managers it's probably fast enough to run TDE.

I have tested Trinity on a PII with 448 MB of RAM. Barely usable and requires patience.

What are _realistic_ minimum hardware requirements?

I'm guessing Pentium III and 512 MB of RAM.

Thoughts? Experiences?
