The Bigger the better the faster, the better. Get the best you can afford because it will last longer.
You can still process images on a lower powered laptop/pc it just takes longer. In terms of hardware ram and processor speed are the most important. When you buy a computer make sure you ask how much ram you can upgrade it with. Some mother boards will only take 8gig max, which will be fine for most applications. One of my pc's only takes 8 gigs of ram and is an i5 3ghz and when stacking images using pixinsight it will max out the processor and ram, effectively locking me out of the computer until it's done.
