System Requirements for coding?

I'm getting a used laptop for coding since my laptop is Win 7 64-bit.

What are the other system requirements?

well, i'm buying a used laptop instead. Cheaper than upgrading. I just wanted to make sure the system requirements are enough to run the coding software.

Looking at picking up an IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T43 with has xp pro.

its a requirement to run a OS using 32bits. How ever you get it to work. Windows 64 is not compatible.

Used laptop is cheaper and easier than $70 for home to pro?
