  1. Hard to describe but any modern computer should be able to do it just fine. Except for netbooks. Also it's 1920x1080 not 1920x1200. 720p, 1080p are all 16:9 aspect ratios.

    Intel HD 2000 seems to just about manage it, anything better than that will just be smoother. Any AMD APU, any graphics card or Intel HD 2000/2500/3000/4000 should be fine.

    In the CPU department, the Intel Atom seems to struggle but the slightly more powerful AMD E-350 seems to be fine, I would say that would be your minimum there. So basically any CPU on sale (with the possible exception of the Intel Atom) should be fine.

    With the RAM, I wouldn't run Windows 7 at all with less than 2GB RAM. 4GB is recommended really.

    @samuelspark 1920x1200 does exist, it's 16:10. It is generally still considered 1080P because although it has more vertical pixels, it is still pretty much the same definition.
