Hi, I spent a lot of time yesterday reading the first two chapters. I am wondering if it is is possible to install MongoDB plus an 1.5 GB to 2.5 Gb database on resource-limited, 32-bit laptops which are probably running Windows 7+? Laptop users must still being able to easily use the database in a node.js application. The book begins to discuss scaling (vertically, horizontally), replication and sharding; for the specific project I am on, none of these things are possible. The users I will be working with do not live close to me, so I need to have a database engine that can be installed on a limited 32 bit machine that "just works". Would MongoDB fit that scenario?

I realize the most reasonable answers here might be "No!" or "roll it out on a test machine and see what happens."

This is a great book, by the way! My compliments on it.
