The SSD and memory are the things you'd want to focus on.

My "desktop" is a small 65watt box without moving parts; no fan, no sounds, by using an i3 laptop-cpu. Before you call that "too slow", remember that compiling is not just a CPU-function, there's a lot of disk-activity involved.

When I bought it, lots of people would say 16Gb is excessive - and that's true, most people do not have a VM running with 4Gb dedicated to it.
