You have to consider one more area; screen size :) OWB is better with a big screen :)
Give him a big screen. Or at least an additional monitor.
I'm also running OWB 11gR2 and Oracle Enterprise Edition 11gR2 on a Core i5/ 8 GB laptop. Never had an issue.
But if you have budget give him an i7.

You are far more likely to see performance issues with network throughput between the developer client and the OWB repository database. OWB has always been a network bandwidth junkie since the 2.0-days, though it is a bit better these days. Due to the network congestion and latency between our developer clients and our repository, we ended up installing OWB clients on several citrix servers located in the same data center as the OWB repository database to reduce the latency (multiple citrix boxes were needed since OWB design client is not built for multiple simultaneous developer sessions on the same box, file locking issues, preferences overwriting, etc.).
