Thats geeky for minimum configuration, but gave you a best response for your high expectations. of course the minimum conf of a computer changes from day-to-day and what you have suggested seems fit.

I works on the technical field and I think the bare minimum requirement is knowledge to use a computer. On a desktop computer, there are still so many that refers to the monitor as "the computer" and the base unit as "the cpu". I ask them if they have antivirus software and they answer what's that? Its not their fault as they are still learning and they have to start somewhere. What if a person that does not know how to drive buys a car? For technical specification, it all depends on what you want to do with the computer. There is no point spending say $2000 on a computer if all you are going to use it for is the internet and word processing. You could buy a $200 computer to do that. The first thing I would ask is what do you want to use the computer for? If you a sales person what the minimum spec is then you will be paying a lot for things that you would not even use.
