At the bottom end, I have had occasion to use Erlang on my Asus eee 
netbook with 1 Gb of RAM and a single-core Atom processor.  (You can get 
these for under EUR 200 these days.)

It isn't very fast and I'm very glad it isn't my main development 
environment, but it does work OK and it fits neatly into my handluggage 
for flights.
