    It depends on your Guest OS. For example: for Windows XP 768mb of RAM should be enough.

    I haven't spent time to compare performances with different RAM amount but with Windows XP Pro SP2, 768MB of RAM (out of the 2GB I have on my macbook) makes everything fly including beasts such as Visual Studio 2005 and Carbide.c++ without impacting the mac applications.

    500 mb
    and 30 gb for hard disk
    Win XP laptops used to be sold with just 500 mb memory
