MacBook Pro system requirements

I'm finally getting a Pro to work alongside my iMac but notice that the system requirements for Live 9 don't detail what processor speed is recommended. My iMac runs at 3.4ghz so obviously no problems there, but what speed would be ok for the pro? Obviously "as fast as you can afford" is the correct answer, but could I get away with a 2ghz processor?

    Most multicore processors made in the past couple years should handle the job. Live worked quite well on my old dual core macbook.

    But remember that processor speed is only one part of things. Having proper RAM and a fast Drive helps a lot as well.
