it is very hard to name the specific requirements without further details. Please see https://www.paessler.com/prtg/requirements Most likely every up-to-date Dual-Core PC with at least 1GB or RAM will do fine. Harddisk is not important as Remote Probes only write logfiles on disk, everything else is sent to the PRTG Core.

Best Regards.
