System requirement for participating in contests on analytics vidhya



Hi! I am new to data analysis, I have read Analytics Vidhya’s blog it is said that minimum requirement of laptop must be 8GB RAM and, currently I am using a laptop which has 2GB RAM. Can I use my laptop for participating in contests on Analytics Vidhya and if not, can you suggest me some another alternative?



It is difficult to train Machine Learning models in 2GB RAM. Algos like RandomForest, KMeans, KNN, SVM, Neural Networks need much more RAM else they will take forever to train. Same would be the case while data wrangling too.

Regarding the system choice alternatives,
@jalFaizy, your inputs would be beneficial in this.
