1st - My priority (or choise) is high ram. This mean you need min 16 Gb Ram with 2133 MHz.

2nd min i5 processor, 6MB, 2.6 GHz

3rd Win 7 ultimate 64bit (or another win 7)

4th hard disk (min 256 ssd + 1tb hdd)

5th good ergonomic mouse

6th average graphic card with 2Gb (nvidia is my recommendation)

7th for long working hours you need also good cooling system.
