|sdh||For those of you without an optical drive, download the update for Lightroom 4.1 (or 4.2 if it's out yet) and install it. It's the full version and you can just input your product key.|

Oh well, the point was that even on a low end netbook with only 4GB of RAM and a 7200 RPM disk, it worked. When released, LR 4 had some significant performance problems, but I'm guessing they've been worked out.
I think the poster should try it first, but if I were buying a new PC for this, I would skip the i5 and get an i7 (e.g., 3700 or better), use a 64-bit OS with 16GB of memory at least, a fast video card (check Adobe's support for models) and if LR uses a scratch disk like PS does, then make sure you have two disks, one for the OS/program and one for scratch. SSDs of course, will be faster than rotational media.

It'd be: move a slider, wait a couple sec to see results, adjust it a little more, wait another couple sec for it to update, whoops moved it too much, slide it back, more waiting, etc... then next slider... then next photo, which itself would take a bit to load x however many you shot. sure there was the option to copy edits from one, then apply to the rest, but sometimes that wasn't practical to do to get the best final outcome.
this summer I made the jump to i5 3750k, SSD, and 16gb of ram (not sure which component contributes more), and editing is now fast and I feel now at liberty to tweak at will to get my final outcome! btw, I was using LR3 before this, and I felt that LR4 ran more efficient on the same hardware

You might even be able to run them side by side if you want, but I'm not sure.

I've run LR 3.x (haven't tried 4.x) on an Acer netbook with an AMD C-60 x64 processor and it ran fine. this is considered a low power processor, so in most cases you'll be fine, even if LR 4 requires a little more horse power.
