Please see the installation manual for details about the hardware you need to have (depends on the application release).
Applications Releases 11i and 12

As much as you can afford! Mid to high range.
If you want both you'll need a heap of disk - you could go external or very large internal. As an example for R12.1 Software and Vision DB is minimum 260GB, and that doesn't include O/S, etc. or R11i.
Memory - go for 3Gb+ if you want R12 to run, I'd go with 4Gb
Processor - dual core preferable as fast as possible.

Gareth - got it.
Could you pls. confirm whether Core 2 Duo (2.1 GHz) is good enough becoz in some posts I see CPU @ 3GHz as minimum ? Also, if you don't mind, sharing any particular laptop brand and model, you actually did or seen running Oracle Apps.
The 3GHz minimum is most likely a recommendation for production servers. The installer is not going to tell you "CPU too slow...cannot continue". Memory and disk space are far more likely to be the limiting factors in a single-user system -- I assume that you won't be supporting a development team of 20 just from your laptop. :-)
I actually run my test EBS instances in VMware, but here are the specs on my laptop:
CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 4GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Internal HD: 150GB SATA 5400 RPM (not large enough for running Oracle Apps, so I also have...)
External HD: 500GB, 5400 RPM (one of these )
PS Gareth, that's a sweet rig you have there!
I have a laptop with the following configuration..
Processor : Intel® Core™ i3 350(2.26GHz,3M Cache)
Ram : 2GB
HDD : 320 GB
Is this configuration enough to run oracle apps R12? And Please let me know , is it possible to install and run oracle apps R12 from an external hard disk? ( I have external hard disk of size - 500 GB).
Thanks in Advance,
Is this configuration enough to run oracle apps R12? And Please let me knowIt should be OK. However, I would recommend adding more memory.
is it possible to install and run oracle apps R12 from an external hard disk? ( I have external hard disk of size - 500 GB).Yes, but do not expect the performance to be same as installing the application on an internal drive.
