Ram: atleast 512
Video Card: 64MB minimum
bare minimum for new PC, since all OSes will be going to 64 bit soon

Sony if you want more flashy stuff they have some great stuff.
You might also want to check out the new dell X1 I am pretty sure you could even get a free printer with that one. But in case you still favor a mac I would consider waiting until the upgrade their powerbooks.

It is more powerful and expandable.
For a PC, Solo suggested an AMD. That's the best choice, but I think you'd be better off with at least 1Gb RAM and a video card featuring 128Mb VRAM. Wih that amount of memory, graphic processing would run on silk.
For a Mac, you should consider a PowerMac G5. I think the best bargains now are the 2x2 and the 2,3x2 models.
