1) 2 Ghz is probably higher than needed but im willing to bet your fine
2) 2 RAM? 2 what RAM? 2 Kb? 2 Mb?

Your probably fine. Just download and install it. Worst comes to worse you cant use the program and you just uninstall it.

I would guess it has to do with the complexity of the drawing the more there is to it the more of a system you will need for it to run smoothly. When I used to do cad for a software company some of the drawings would bring most desktop computers of the time to their knees but those systems could handle less complex drawings without breaking a sweat.
