I am running OS on 64bit Win10 PC with Intel i5 - 6200 CPU, 16 GB ram and 128GB SSD. It is a 4000 PassMark CPU grade which is not too fast. That is what my performance chart looks like when I run simulation:

I can easily run two simulations simultaneously.

Take into account that if you want to use SKetchUP you need to have a compatible GPU.

I overlooked the Ubuntu part. In that case no SketchUp even with Wine and I guess it will need even less resources.
