    77 * Reasonably powerful '''x86 hardware.''' Any recent Intel or AMD processor should do. 
    88 
    9  * '''Memory.''' Depending on what guest operating systems you want to run, you will need at least 512 MB of RAM (the more the better). 
     9 * '''Memory.''' Depending on what guest operating systems you want to run, you will need at least 512 MB of RAM (but probably more, and the more the better). Basically, you will need whatever your host operating system needs to run comfortably, plus the amount that the guest operating system needs. So, if you want to run Windows XP on Windows XP, you probably won't enjoy the experience much with less than 1 GB of RAM. 
     10 
     11 * '''Hard disk space.''' While !VirtualBox itself is very lean (a typical installation will only need about 30 MB of hard disk space), the virtual machines will require fairly huge files on disk to represent their own hard disk storage. So, to install Windows XP, for example, you will need a file that will easily grow to several MB in size.  
    1012 
    1113 * A supported '''host operating system.''' Presently, we support Windows (primarily XP) and many Linux distributions. Support for 64-bit operating systems is progressing, but not yet stable; the same applies to Mac OS X hosts.
