I think the only hard requirement is the storage size. Also the memory, 
to some extend.
The quickstart guide mentions 50GB of space requirement: 

The reasonable minimum I would recommend today is 4 threads, 4 - 8 GB of 
memory and 100GB of storage.
You of course need storage to store all the build artifacts and 
downloaded stuff.
The memory may be a bottleneck when linking huge applications (webkit, 
web browsers).
The CPU mostly impacts the build time.
