Probably not that specific, but they have to calculate an average OS
with average software running on it, and for a Windows 7 + basic
software, the hardware needs are not much different.

Corporate network, and lots of USB sticks and USB HDDs moving around.
Virus scanner is an absolute must have...

I've seen it hogging 1GB of RAM while compiling an medium sized project,
3-4Mb zipped sources. VS08 also takes its part, but VS10 takes more,
especially if intellisense and compiler run in parallel. The new IDE is
worth it however.
