This varies depending on what kind of programming you will do (games, web, terminal etc). In general you will want: 4-16 GB RAM 3+ GHz processor 500-2000 GB storage A decent GPU

You just only need a pc/laptop with a simple text editor (a computer normally predefine installed one). Also you can code in a mobile or a tablet downloading an app or even online text editor. You dont need a expensive pc to code, you need effort :)

it depends on what you do for example: programming an android app is not like writing python scripts

It depends on what tools do you want to use in your programming. You certainly can't run Android Studio on a old pc with low memory and stone age features. However you can run the mingw compiler on virtually any computer that can be turned on.

If you intend to test the program on the same computer you code on, the computer must have adequate memory, speed, and graphics for the type of program you want to create. If you only want to write the program on a computer with out testing on the same computer, almost any machine will do. Compilers work best with free HD space & RAM. The faster the processor is, the quicker the program will compile. I prefer a machine with at least 4 GB RAM, about 30 GB storage and a 2 - 4 GHz processor speed. More memory won't make much difference if the compiler is efficient. Additional HD space makes it possible to store multiple source versions and compiled versions of your program on the development PC.
