I have a laptop with 3gb ram , core 2duo processor. I am installing openstack on vmware. Virtual machine has 1.5gb ram. note : this just for experimenting(learning) how to configure the openstack. Later we deploy it on higher configuration. Is above configurations are enough?

I had done a test environment on my Toshiba C50-A172 with INTEL I3 processors having 3GB of Ram. Its slow, but you will get an overview of how Openstack works. My version was Icehouse on Ubuntu. I dont know how VMWARE will behave on this infrastructure.

Best Luck

Its so slow, but is enough to setup testing environment. My last experience on openstack installation was on a poor system with 1GB RAM. Make sure that your processor supports virtualization technology(Check this link if your processor is intel). You can use devstack on ubuntu to setup your envirtonment.
