The absolute minimum requirement is for your laptop to have a 64 bit processor and 8GB of RAM.
It does not necessarily have to be fast, but that will most certainly help.
Usually a computer that is not older than 4 years will be sufficient.
The recommended minimum system requirements:
Quad Core CPU (2 Ghz)
4GB of memory
SSD (120 GB)
A SSD (Solid State Drive) is highly preferred over an HDD (Hard Disk Drive) because it will drastically increase the performance of a computer.
