as I try to write a little howto for sage, I would start a little poll with that question. If you are using a system lower then a Core2Duo CPU in combination with a binary installation, please let me know about it, so I get the best fit for a minimal system requirement for running a binary sage system.
Greetings

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7669/sage-binary-system-requirements/?answer=11625#post-id-11625You can build Sage on very low-end equipment (by modern standards), but you need at least a certain amount of RAM to build certain components (I hear ATLAS is a hog). To just run a binary, presumably you would need much less memory. For instance, I have successfully built and tested Sage on a 700 MHz PowerPC chip with 512 MB memory.
[This thread][1] describes a build on an even lower spec system, I believe. Again, these are builds - I have no idea for actually running Sage. I don't think you'd need more than 100 MB to run it, probably less, though your OS might need some of that space.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7669/sage-binary-system-requirements/?answer=11631#post-id-11631Thanks for a short handbook for some teachers, I'm just interessted in the minimal system requirements for binary, as I normaly use a source based linux, I haven't the problem, but we had experienced last week problems using a binary package on an older box, so it would be interessting to get here some infos about what is at least necessary to run the binary packages...Tue, 07 Sep 2010 19:59:44 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7669/sage-binary-system-requirements/?answer=11631#post-id-11631
