The problem with minimum specs is what people are prepared to put up with. A 700 MHz PIII Celeron with 256 MiB of PC100 RAM and a 100 MHz drive is quite usable. A 200 MHZ PIII Celeron and 128 MiB of 66MHz RAM with a 33 MHz drive is dog slow. If you add a screen reader into the mix I think the later set-up would become unusable. I'll try this later and see.
