I think the guidelines would be good to capture, but that seems like
it'd be more of a footnote or subsection to a larger hardware
notes/specs/suggestions page with some guides for picking processors,
memory, et al(maybe also noting what flavors of OSes are known to have
particular upside/downsides).   It was noted no less than 3 times in
the thread this is a very fluid target and completely reasonable
choices today (e.g. X TB sata drives) might be viewed as silly in a
year or 6 months.

that's my personal opinion, anyway.

Even the Magic 8 ball has an opinion on email clients: Outlook not so good.
