I maintain that bot. It's a Mac Mini:

$ sw_vers
ProductName: Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.9.5
BuildVersion: 13F34

$ sysctl -a | grep memsize
hw.memsize = 8589934592

$ sysctl -a | grep cpu.thread_count
machdep.cpu.thread_count: 8

$ df -h /
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on
/dev/disk0s2 931Gi 42Gi 888Gi 5% 11150418 232830324 5% /

It can run up to 2 SVN builds in parallel that each use a 2-gig RAMdisc
(hence, using up half the available RAM). Running SVN build and tests on
the spinning disk would be horribly slow. The RAMdiscs are created
on-demand. There are currently 3 Serf and 11 Subversion builders
configured to use this slave.

Building AOO nightlies or releases shouldn't be a problem, assuming they
don't need a gazillion dependencies installed on the box. Using it as a
commit-triggered build slave would probably be a bit too much.
