You haven't found min. requirements because QGIS can run on really old
hardware. I see it doing ok on netbooks (aside from occasional dialog
window size issues).
So short answer if it can run Win 7, Mac OS X, or Linux 2006+ then it's
probably fine for QGIS. In reality most Windows XP machines also work.
Of course if you want a machine that will run GIS well in everyday use
Quick summary for a GIS professional:
i5+, 4GB ram, discrete graphics not necessary with i5 HD4000+ but a 1 GB
card is nice or more ram if using the i5 built in, 100 GB - 1 TB free
space (GIS layers get big and you make lots of copies)
64 bit OS, pick your flavor.
