This is very difficult to answer generally, as it depends *entirely *on
what sort of interactive computing you are doing and how compute intensive
it is.  I've run the notebook server on everything from a seven-year-old
MacBook to a 3 GHz quad core Intel server with 32 gig of RAM -- it all
works, just at different speeds.

If you want to get a sense of performance, you might consider starting with
a free virtual server at Amazon http://aws.amazon.com/free/, Rackspace
http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/servers/pricing/, etc. (not endorsing any
one provider).
