In R, I usually get out of memory errors while running a linear model on a big dataset or random forest with 5000 trees. I usually work on my laptop on windows 7 32 bit OS, 1 CPU, 4G RAM.
Ány idea what is the minimum recommended computer configuration for working on dataset provided in Data Science Competitions? Is there any cost effective solution to this than getting a new upgraded laptop/computer?
Thanks in advance.
